Prospective Students

Northwestern has a history as a breeding ground for many of the important advances in modern microeconomic theory, a tradition that continues today.

For Ph.D. applicants interested in economic theory, Northwestern University provides a uniquely stimulating learning and research environment, with features unmatched elsewhere.

A key element is the seamless integration of the Department of Economics and the Kellogg School of Management, which gives Northwestern’s theory community more theory faculty, more theory courses, more theory visitors, and more theory seminars than anywhere else in the world.
