Founded in 1983, the Carleton Economics Seminar has been located at the University of Cambridge for nearly 30 years. The University has been home to many great economic theorists including Alfred Marshall, John Maynard Keynes, and F.A. Hayek. Being in Britain allows students to study the contemporary British economy as well as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution. The program has become an integral part of the economics curriculum at Carleton, and the faculty believes the seminar’s historical focus and exposure to British culture help students see themselves, their country, and the world with new perspective.
