The Initiative has two pillars which draw on faculty excellence from both departments. Pillar One consists of a common PhD research seminar, in which PhD candidates from both departments interact and discuss their on-going research ideas under the guidance of two faculty from the two departments. Pillar Two consists of a broad set of elective courses offered by both departments, which span all fields on the research frontier in Economics, and which PhD candidates at the two departments can take.
