Structure of the Program

The plan of the program is that it has two parts. The first part, which takes place in the first two weeks, consists of mainly lectures, three per day for most of the days, by experienced researchers and editors of international journals. Three types of lectures will be offered: writing and publishing academic papers; frontiers of theory and academic work; the US and some Asian economies and some of their economic issues. There will also be one or two field trips to local businesses and/or government offices. The third week (the second part of the program) is a mentoring program, mainly for junior faculty and researchers. Each of the participants will be paired with one mentor, who is a renowned and experienced researcher. Each participant will present his/her work, such as a paper and description of his/her work and research plan, and will receive comments from the mentor, who will also present a literature survey. There will also be a one-to-one meeting between each participant and the mentor.

At the end of the second week, there will be a conference with outside speakers. All participants will be local organizers, helping organize the conference. They will also participate in the conference.

Participants can join either the first part (the first two weeks), the second part (the third week), or both parts. The medium of instruction is English.
