Drop-in advising is available for all students on Wednesdays ONLY from 10 AM to noon and 1-4 PM in the Undergraduate Suite (7238 Social Sciences). Drop-in is first come, first served, so we recommend arriving promptly.

In collaboration with the Undergraduate Advising Office, Wisconsinites for Inclusion and Diversity in Economics (WIDE), is organizing a half-day lunch workshop for undergrads! This workshop has options for those just beginning to explore Economics and for those interested in Economics Ph.D./careers in economics research. You can choose between two tracks based on how far along you are with your studies & interests!
Friday, March 3 (12:30-4:30pm) at Van Hise 583 & 587
Track 1: Exploring Economics Research
In this track, you will talk with current PhD students and advisors to learn more about Economics PhD programs and research, related fields and careers, and how to best prepare for these different paths!
This track may be better suited for students earlier in their academic careers who are still exploring career paths in or related to Economics.
Track 2: Applying to a PhD
In this track, you will talk with current PhD students and professors to learn what the typical application process looks like for an Economics PhD.
This track may be better suited for students who have taken upper level electives and who definitely want to apply for a PhD in Economics.
Fill out the interest form by February 17 to participate!
We are proud to announce the UW-Madison Economics Department Job Market Candidates for 2022-2023.
