Chicago Price Theory

Price Theory Summer Camp

About the 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.

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. Particpants 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.

2012 Camp

Applications are now being accepted for the next program, to be held June 17-21, 2012, on the University of Chicago campus. Applications are due by April 16. Approximately 30 students will be accepted.

To apply, e-mail a completed application form and a curriculum vita and information to Rosalind Battle. Applications will only be accepted by e-mail.
