This graduate seminar-style training program is for journalists seeking to enhance their economic knowledge and reporting skills and network with their peers. Through lectures, simulations, and discussions, two experienced economics professors will demonstrate how economics can be used to better understand the world around us, and provide real, relevant examples from Canadian society.
