CARE as a mentoring program
Do you want to pursue a PhD in economics and to become an opinion leader? Then, you are at the right place. Graduate training in economics can offer excellent career opportunities regardless of whether you want to be an academic researcher, a public policy maker, or a professional consultant. However, it is a competitive profession: getting admission to top graduate program requires a lot of preparation and dedication, and earning a degree successfully needs even more. We are here to help undergraduate students who want to steer their life in this direction. We provide faculty mentoring for this. See contact information below.
CARE to support women and minorities
Women and minorities are under-represented in the profession and this program reflects our mission to counter that. See our mission statement for diversity.
