Harvard Graduate Students Win the Econometric Game at the University of Amsterdam

Four graduate students in the Harvard Economics Department won the 17th Econometric Game in 2016 hosted by the University of Amsterdam; they are Daniel Lewis, Kirsten Clinton, Stephanie Cheng, and Sanjay Misra (pictured).

The University of Amsterdam hosts the Econometric Game annually, in which team delegations of four students majoring in econometrics or other relevant fields of study participate in resolving case studies within two days. After two days, ten teams with the best solutions advance to day three when finalists solve a second case.  The Econometric Game Congress follows with lecturers speaking about the case and the econometric methods needed to solve it.  Solutions are reviewed and chosen by jury before the winner is announced.

The Econometric Game for 2016 was held on April 6-8, 2016 in Amsterdam.
