Carroll Round

    Are you ready to join the world-leading economics undergraduates?

    Each year a number of our undergraduate students are invited to present papers at a conference in the United States.

    Held at Georgetown University, The Carroll Round is an annual international economics conference providing a unique forum for research and discussion among the world’s top undergraduates and encourages and supports scholarly innovation in the field among leading undergraduates in economics.

    ...completely impressed by how well-organised, friendly, and welcoming the members of the committee were. Matthew Bailey (2013)
    An enlightening, academically invigorating, and also thoroughly enjoyable experience. Samuel Evans (2012)
    An outstanding conference and opportunity for undergraduates that I would highly encourage students to apply for. Meryljo Ching (2011)

    The papers presented by our final-year students are products of our unique undergraduate research project, which has been commended by both external examiners and students themselves for the value it adds to job applications and preparation for postgraduate study.

    The conference also gives you the chance to meet world-renowed economists, such as Joseph Stiglitz, a recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences and former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank, pictured here with our 2011 Carroll Round students.

    Our participants

    Since 2007 our students have presented papers at the Carroll Round due to the high calibre of work they have produced, with a Warwick Economics undergraduate awarded the prize for 'Outstanding Participant and Paper' at the 2012, 2015 & 2016 Carroll Round's.
