The Great British Economics Olympiad at RIC
The UK Economics Olympiad is a national competition for secondary school students run by Rochester Independent College on behalf of the International Economics Olympiad (IEO) Committee. The competition is designed to promote interest in economics and to identify talented students who may become future leaders in the field. The top performing students will be given the opportunity to represent the UK at the International Economics Olympiad in the summer of 2024.
It is a great opportunity for high school students who are interested in economics to showcase their knowledge and skills, meet other students from around the world who share their interests, and gain valuable experience and recognition. Budding economists will develop critical problem-solving skills, learn to think more creatively and get a chance to test their knowledge in new, real-world situations. They could even find themselves representing the UK at the prestigious International Economics Olympiad Finals, this year to be held in Greece.
