Join us for the 2017
International Economic Summit

The International Economic Summit (IES) is a simulation of the global economy. It is an effective learning experience for middle and high school students on globalization, international relations and economics. At the Summit, student teams, representing the nations of today's complex world, compete for scarce resources, form strategic country alliances, discuss global issues, invest in long term development projects, interact with global economic institutions, and seek to stabilize and advance the global economy.

The IES is composed of TWO parts: Teacher Training and Student Competition

Part 1: Join us for a day of professional development to learn how your students can compete on December 5th! You will receive instruction and a classroom practice kit so you can go back and show your students how to win!

Part 2: THE SUMMIT! Teams from all over MS, representing countries from all over the world, come together on December 5, 2017 at Mississippi College in Clinton, MS for the Summit Competition (separate middle school and high school divisions). Check out the awesome prizes!
**Teacher must be trained before registering teams for the Summit.
