A Visit from the Dean in Geneva

As the end of week two draws near, our four budding experts of international trade were visited by Dean Goldgeier and Associate Dean Dunsmore.

In the past week, the students have met with WTO officials and participated in lectures from several top academics in the field. So far the students have been equipped with a fluent understanding of the economics of free trade, the political implications of free-trade decisions, and the legal framework of the WTO system. In addition to their in class lectures, the students have also been able to visit such places as the UN and the WTO, as well as participating in social events with their fellow classmates.

And that was only week one!
