INEV Economics Olympiad 2023
Take part!

What is the Economics Olympiad?

Too few education systems recognize the powerful and lifelong impact which an early education in economics and finance can have on everyone’s daily lives. The Economics Olympiad is the brainchild of the Institute of Economic Education (INEV) in the Czech Republic. Its purpose is to inspire interest in economics learning among teenagers. Today the Economics Olympiad is run in 7 countries. In 2023, Economic Fundamentals Initiative (EFI) is delighted to bring the competition to a further 6 countries.

How does the Economics Olympiad work?

The Economics Olympiad consists of up to 4 rounds - school, regional (optional), national, and international. The 5 best students from each country will compete in the international round.

  • School Round

    Open to students with no economics learning! Students sit an online test. The top students advance to the next round.

  • Regional Round

    Online or offline depending on the local situation.

  • National Round

    A one-day event for the country’s 50 top contestants.

  • International Economics Olympiad

    The top 5 students from each country will travel to Bratislava, Slovakia, to take part in the 2023 international contest! The Olympiad is held over 2-4 days. Contestants have the opportunity to make new friends, visit a new country and hear and learn from prestigious guest speakers.

Prepare for success!

The Economics Olympiad is for high school students aged 14-20. No formal economics education is required to take part. But!...you can help yourself get on the road to success by reading EFI’s free edition of “Common Sense Economics” and watching the many short videos available in our library.

Years of economic populism spread by politicians or through social networks are in dire need of a counterbalance. I am delighted that, thanks to the Economics Olympiad, students have the opportunity to challenge their economic mindset and investigate the real reasons behind wage levels or the drivers behind international trade.

Founder of the Economics Olympiad

To tell the truth, I wasn`t really familiar with economics. I never took an interest in it or even tried to explore it. However, "Common Sense Economics" book totally turned my understanding of economics upside down. Now I can say with confidence that everyone can enjoy learning economics.

...I think the Economics Olympiad is a really worthwhile activity. Economics and social sciences, in addition to being fun and beautiful, are very important for our societies.
