Leadership Academy

2017 Leadership Academy

July 26 – July 30

Washington, D.C

“Leadership and Economics” is an extension of our Economics for Leaders and Economic History for Leaders programs.  This program expands the economic reasoning skills learned in both the EFL and EHFL programs through 4 days of activities and projects in the same interactive style that FTE alumni will recognize. Topics include history, government policy, leadership, and economics. Participants are challenged to take their FTE experience to the next level by applying the economic reasoning propositions to historical analysis and to leadership dilemmas.

In addition to the advance economic and leadership activities, students have the opportunity to visit some of Washington, DC’s great attractions.  Participants will stay in the Capitol Hill neighborhood with room and board provided by FTE.  Alumni spend four full days at the program site, arriving Wednesday afternoon and departing the following Sunday.  The expense to participants include the $500 program fee, travel to and from the program site, and spending money.

This program is open to 2016 EFL and EHFL student participants. Deadline to apply is April 15, 2017.
