"During the summer, I was fortunate enough to participate in the I.S.E.O. Summer School in Economics, which took place in Iseo, Italy. The program centered around the topic of "The World After: Anticipating the Global Economy's Future Challenges." Its main objective was to explore the various challenges that the world's economies are currently encountering and will confront in the aftermath of significant events like the pandemic and the geopolitical tensions arising from the conflict in Ukraine.
The Summer School offered more than just academic learning and study opportunities
for the students. One of the highlights was the chance to interact with the esteemed
lecturers during meals. This allowed for informal conversations and further learning
opportunities. It was a great opportunity to ask questions, seek guidance, and delve
deeper into the topics that fascinated me. In addition to the academic program, the
Summer School organizers curated a range of exciting activities. Attending the I.S.E.O.
Summer School in Economics was truly a transformative experience. From the engaging
academic sessions to the immersive cultural activities and the bonds formed with fellow
participants, the entire program surpassed my expectations.
I am grateful to the Economics Department of Stony Brook University for their generous financial assistance, enabling me to attend this valuable summer school."
