Economic Review Sessions

IIEP Summer Economics Programs

The Institute for International Economic Policy (IIEP) will offer a series of online micro- and macroeconomics programs this summer for Elliott School students. Most Elliott School Masters degrees require economics courses; these programs will help students prepare for this coursework. No academic credit is offered.

  • Online Economic Principles Programs: Elliott School students required to complete a full economics course to satisfy a prerequisite before the Fall semester can use these programs to satisfy economics prerequisites. This includes an introductory microeconomics, introductory macroeconomics or combined micro- and macroeconomics principles course. Please click here for more information.
  • Online Economics Review Programs: Elliott School students with some economics background should review micro- and/or macroeconomics at the introductory or intermediate level before the Fall semester. These review programs provide students a structured way to enter the Elliott School with good command of necessary economics tools and terminology. Students alerted by the Elliott School Admissions Office to compete “refresher” programs must participate in these programs. Please click here for more information.

FREE ONLINE ECONOMICS DIAGNOSTICS TEST: IIEP will offer a free online economics diagnostics test from May 1 through mid-June. Completion of this assessment will help students plan their summer review of economics. Please click here for more information.

  • Incoming students with some background in economics are **strongly** recommended to take this diagnostic to gauge their current knowledge of micro- and macroeconomics and how to prepare over the summer.

Note that the results from the diagnostic may differ from the Elliott School Admissions Office recommendation that is based solely on examination of a transcript. The diagnostic is designed to provide an accurate analysis of student preparation for Elliott School economics coursework. Student results on the diagnostic will allow IIEP faculty to provide students with an individualized recommendation for how to best prepare for coursework at GWU.
