Annual economics competition for global talented students

The Philosophies of WEC
Economics for Future
The WEC not only lets students pay attention to what happened in the past and the corresponding traditional economics theory, but also encourages students to think about the emerging issues and development of economics in the present and future.
In addition to the traditional classical economic theory, the competition also includes the most cutting-edge economics research and theoretical achievements.
Pure Economics Competition
WEC is a pure economics competition, consisting of multiple-choice questions about basic economics concepts, material-based questions based on on-site economics learning, and Thinking and Innovation to demonstrate students' innovative thinking and problem-solving abilities to real-world problems.
Problem-Solving by Economics
In addition to solving economics problems, students are encouraged to think about how to use economics to solve global problems.
The economists' mind and "economics thinking" will be widely used. Such issues as global warming, the development of artificial intelligence, trade conflicts and so on will become the subject of WEC. WEC invites future economists to think about solutions.
Opportunity Equality for Every Student
There are the concepts of "equal result" and "equal opportunity" in economics. WEC adheres to the principle of equal opportunity for every student and is committed to avoiding students' background, education level, economics fundamentals and other factors affecting the opportunities to participate in and compete in WEC.
WEC values students' thinking mode and problem-solving ability, and provides enough academic guidance and background knowledge in the competition, rather than testing on students' previous learning and knowledge from economics courses in schools.
