Academy of Young Economist

The Academy of Young Economist (AME) is a program of economic education for junior high school students. Its organizers are: the Foundation for the Promotion and Accreditation of Economic Education and the Warsaw School of Economics. The Academy was initiated on September 2008 for children who graduated from the Children’s Economic University and - because of graduation from primary school – could not continue their participation in lectures at Children's Economic University (EUD). 

The Academy operates under the system similar to that of EUD. One semester is a cycle of six meetings on economics and management. Each meeting lasts 90 minutes and consists of a lecture, a workshop and a seminar discussion. The lectures are led by SGH’s lecturers and the Foundation’s experts. The organization of workshops is supported by economy and psychology students who are team leaders. After each meeting, educational materials, video report and photo gallery are published on the Academy’s website. The gallery contains not only photos of participants but also of their teamwork results. It should be added that parents and caretakers – just like in case of EUD - participate in lectures on upbringing and shaping attitudes.

Graduation from the Academy and obtaining a diploma is possible after the participation in minimum of 4 out of 6 meetings in the semester. Students who had participated in all meetings receive a diploma with distinction. In addition, at the end of each semester willing students take a final test. The student who achieves the highest score is awarded a valuable material prize. In addition, the students who achieved high scores are awarded gifts.

Among the topics of the first edition of Academy it is worth to mention: Marketing and public relations – how do organizations communicate with their environment?; Special economic zones; Risk management; Fast learning techniques; Conflict management, Crisis management.

First semesters were organized in Warsaw. At the moment, the project has been organized in 4 cities: Warsaw, Katowice, Bialystok and Poznan. Since 2012 we have a new local partner in Kielce.
