The Seminar Experience


Why Join Us?

Want to explore economic thinking, world issues, and the entrepreneurial mindset with other top students who are just as curious and driven to get ahead? You can do that and more at one of FEE’s 3-day seminars.

FEE has been a leading non-profit organization hosting sought-after seminars across the U.S. since 1946. For decades, parents and teachers have entrusted us to provide students with a safe, eye-opening learning experience.

At FEE seminars, you'll hear exciting lectures from top professors, entrepreneurs, economists, and business leaders and challenge ideas you've learned in the traditional classroom. You'll also meet other intellectually curious students at social events and put ideas into practice during activities like the Trading Game.

At the end of the seminar, you'll receive a Certificate of Completion that you can add to your resume, gain critical thinking skills that you can use to jump start your career, and understand the personal benefits of economics and entrepreneurship.

Have Questions?

How advanced are these programs?

The programs are designed to focus on fundamentals. We will talk about big ideas, and our goal is for you to leave with more confidence and prepared to take on the world. These programs should be a starting place on your journey to better understand the world and to change it for the better.

I applied for a program. When will I hear if I am accepted?

Students are accepted on a rolling basis; however, we receive many applications, so it may take a few weeks for us to get back to you. You will hear back by the middle of April at the latest.
