Warwick Economics Summer School
The Department of Economics at The University of Warwick is launching its next Warwick Economics Summer School, a three week programme which will run from July 17th – August 6th 2016. Our specialist course, International Development is aimed at current undergraduates and postgraduates studying Economics, as well as professionals.
Alongside the teaching and learning, we have an inspirational programme of evening speakers with Nobel Prize winner Professor George Akerlof, Nick Crafts, CBE, world-renowned Economic historian and Julie Meyer, award winning American entrepreneur, Chief Executive and business commentator delivering talks and sharing their insights with students in previous years. It is an excellent opportunity for students to further enhance their skills and knowledge in Economics through studying and debating at one of the leading Economics departments in Europe.
Our International Development course is taught by our world-leading academics and will provide a thorough grounding in many exciting areas of economics.

Professor Sascha Becker
Economics undergraduates, postgraduates and professionals.
Students must be aged 18+ at the time of the Summer School.
This cutting edge course will introduce students to the key microeconomic issues facing developing countries.
Our International Development course will have an emphasis on the most recent advances in the fields of poverty and foreign aid, poverty and gender inequality and health and education access in developing countries. It will show how the tools of economic analysis can throw light on economic behaviour and help to formulate appropriate policies to remedy acute problems linked to Third World poverty.
By understanding the important role that these issues have in explaining development, we are able to gain a better understanding of the problems faced by some of the world’s poorest nations. The course will show how the tools of economic analysis can throw light on economic behaviour and in turn help to formulate appropriate policies to remedy acute problems linked to poverty.
