Northwestern Economics Tournament (NET) is an annual event for high school students passionate about economics and its applications.
Student competitors will be challenged on various economics principles at the AP Microeconomics and AP Macroeconomics levels as well as on economic history, current events, and modern economic research through individual and team-based rounds. Northwestern economics professors and graduate students will also give presentations and lectures in order to help students gain a broader sense of what role economics plays in the world beyond the classroom. Students will have the chance to interact with our distinguished faculty as well.
Above all else, NET is a learning experience for students, so we encourage everyone interested to participate regardless of their level of exposure to economics. The tournament is a great way to form friendships with peers who are also interested in economics and to learn more about the field and its real-world applications in a college setting.
The annual tournament will take place on April 7th, 2018 at the Kellogg Global Hub. We would like to welcome all students interested in learning more about economics to participate in the tournament! Please use the links below to learn more about the tournament itself or to contact us if you have any questions.
We look forward to seeing you in April!
