Price Theory Summer Camp

The Price Theory Summer Camp was created to introduce PhD students from outside the University of Chicago to price theory, which emphasizes the application of basic economic tools to problems.

About the Camp

During this intensive one-week program, students hear lectures from UChicago price theory faculty and experience a series of “Chicago-style” seminars where faculty present their research in progress. Participants also work on problem sets in workshop and have opportunities to discuss their own work with some of the world's leading economists.

The program is geared toward PhD students in economics who have completed their third or fourth year of study, but applications are accepted from doctoral candidates of all levels.

The 2017 camp will be held July 9–13. Faculty include Kevin Murphy, Steven Levitt, and John List.

Generous support for the camp is provided by MarrGwen and Stuart Townsend.
