Professor Luigi Zingales, director of the Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, will host an informational session next month at Booth’s London campus to discuss the 2018 Journalists in Residence Program.
The session will be held July 4 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Woolgate Exchange, 25 Basinghall St., London, UK, EC2V 5HA
Zingales will be joined by 2017 Stigler Center Journalist-in-Residence fellow Alexandra Fattal, Italy business and finance correspondent at The Economist.
One of the missions of the Stigler Center at Chicago Booth is to enrich the public debate on matters related to the interaction between politics and the economy.
In order to help shape the next generation of business reporters, the center held its first Journalists-in-Residence Program in spring 2017.
The quarter-long program offers a transformative learning experience for journalists from around the world who wish to deepen their understanding of the political economy.
Journalists from around the world are encouraged to apply. Applications for spring 2018 will open on Aug. 1, 2017.
