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.
During this intensive one-week program, students heard lectures from UChicago price theory faculty and experienced a series of “Chicago-style” seminars where faculty presented their research in progress. Participants also worked on problem sets in workshops and had 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.
For students selected to participate through a highly competitive process, funding is provided to cover travel, accommodations, and meals.
