Site Spotlight – University of California, Santa Barbara


This summer high school students have the opportunity to learn more about economics and practice their leadership skills while relaxing along the pacific ocean on the beaches of Santa Barbara! From July 20th-August 5th our Economics for Leaders program will take place in this southern California city, often referred to as the American Riviera.

University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), is a renowned research university that sits on 1000 + acres of coastline in the back drop of the Santa Ynez mountains. The current staff of UCSB include six Nobel Prize winners in various fields. In 2018 the university was listed among the best colleges in the US and ranked in the top 10 for best public universities!

If you know someone who’d love to spend a week at Economics for Leaders you can nominate them here!
