Since 1991, FTE has offered unique summer programs and opportunities to outstanding student leaders interested in learning about economics and leadership principles. Over the years, reviews for our student programs have consistently ranked our Economics for Leaders (EFL) programs as ‘top-notch’, ‘wonderful’ and even ‘life-changing’.

FTE is proud to be able to continue to provide our top-ranked programs to academically motivated student leaders each summer.  In addition to EFL, we’re pleased to offer Economic Forces in American History (EFIAH) to students who have a special interest in learning about the economic factors that shaped key decisions in American history, as well as the leadership qualities that are essential for success in our modern world.

In addition, we’re excited to offer our newest student program, Entrepreneurship in the Global Economy (EGE).  Our EGE program will give entrepreneurial-minded high school students the chance to examine economics from a business aspect, as well as the leadership traits needed to run a successful organization in today’s economy.  A highlight of the EGE program will be the chance to meet and discuss ideas with speakers from two global leaders in the business world – Goldman Sachs and Northern Trust.
