Northwestern Economics Tournament (NET)
Northwestern Economics Tournament (NET) is an annual event for high school students passionate about economics and its applications. It is put on by the Northwestern Economics Department and a team of undergraduates.
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 annual tournament usually takes place on the first or second Saturday of April at the Kellogg Global Hub. We would like to welcome all students interested in learning more about economics to participate! Please use the links below to learn more about the tournament itself.
