Honor: Conferral of Honorary Doctorate

Prof. Oriana Bandiera (LSE) to receive LMU Department of Economics honorary degree


Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to cordially invite you to the festive ceremony on the occasion of the conferral of an honorary doctorate on

Professor Oriana Bandiera, PhD
Professor and Sir Anthony Atkinson Chair of Economics
London School of Economics

by the Department of Economics of LMU Munich.

The festive ceremony will take place on

16 May 2022, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.,
in the Assembly Hall (Große Aula), in LMU’s Main Building,
Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1 (subway stop „Universität“).

The Department of Economics is most proud to confer upon Prof. Bandiera the degree of Doctor of Economics honoris causa.

Prof. Bandiera's research has made important contributions to the influence of monetary incentives and social relationships on individual behavior. Her pioneering use of field experiments in the workplace and in social networks has become a model for the application of randomized control trials and has deeply influenced the field of applied microeconomics. Her transformative work has thus inspired an entire generation of applied economists.

In addition, Prof. Bandiera has rendered outstanding services to the field of economics through numerous institutional responsibilities. Her functions as Director of STICERD at the LSE, as President of the EEA and currently as Editor of Econometrica are particularly noteworthy here. Finally, Prof. Bandiera, along with colleagues, made a crucial contribution to the modernization of the public image of economists in the Anglophone world, first on social media, later also among the broader public through the campaign What Economists Really Do and the platform Microeconomic Insights: Distilling the Research for Public Debate.

Prof. Bandiera will give the following

“Development through the Lens of Organisations”

Please join us to celebrate a stellar scholar!
