Economics For Leaders / FTE

Economics For Leaders by FTE

What Is It?

EFL teaches high school students how to integrate economics into the process of decision-making through a hands-on, experiential environment. Economics professors and leadership instructors, selected nationwide for their expertise and teaching effectiveness, lead classes that introduce students to “the economic way of thinking,” and help them develop an understanding of and skill in leadership. Students will also be challenged by creative decision-making simulations in which they apply the concepts learned in the classroom.
