New PhD Admits-Visit Day

Prospective PhD Student Visit Day

Friday, March 26, 2021

Because of continued precautions regarding COVID-19, we will host a virtual PhD Visit Day again this year. We will not schedule any in-person visits this year in compliance with campus travel restrictions and out of the health and safety of our faculty, staff, students, and admits. We recognize the importance of visiting a campus when making your graduate school choice, but we hope this will not impact your decision to join our program. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause in your decision processes.

This site has been developed for PhD applicants who have been admitted to the Doctoral Program in Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Most likely you are considering several graduate programs. We believe that if you learn about our program, The University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the city of Madison you will be able to make an informed decision about where to attend graduate school. Of course, we think Wisconsin is the best choice you can make.

We have put together information about the Department, the University, and Madison. After reviewing the information if you still have questions, please contact Becca George ( or 608-263-3879).
