Economics is the theory and business is the practice of allocating resources, and at this camp, you will discover this crucial role of economics and the entrepreneur in our society. We will venture beyond the basics and explore the interplay of Christian values, free markets, economic policy, analytics, and cutting edge business practices. This camp is for all business or economics experience levels, and you will benefit from hands-on interaction with PHC's experienced faculty and new friends, ultimately leaving with your choice of a policy or entrepreneurship project to cap your experience.
Guest presenters will include PHC’s Director of the Economics & Business Analytics Program, Dr. Michael Kucks, and PHC’s Executive Vice President and Professor of Business Analytics, Howard Schmidt. Read Dr. Kucks’s bio here and Prof. Schmidt’s here.
