International Economic Summit™

Inspiring future global leaders.

The International Economic Summit™ is a hands-on, activity-based learning program for high school students that teaches the significance of core concepts about globalization, international economics, and what it takes to make highly interdependent nations competitive in today’s dynamic economic environment.

Each summit is a fun, challenging game where student teams represent a country as economic advisors with the goal to raise the standard of living in their country. Teams research their country and propose a solution to a global problem. At the summit, students both compete and work together to complete tasks like building trade alliances, securing resources through importing and exporting, investing in long term development projects, and testing their knowledge of geography, economics, and current events.

Economics, finance, technology, creativity, teamwork, problem solving, writing, speaking, debate, and design—it’s all in the International Economic Summit!
