This year-long course (Economics 3390) is offered to graduate students for academic credit. The workshop invites economists from other universities and institutions to present their work. The students and faculty leading the workshop meet weekly to attend the lectures given on development economics and discuss the papers presented on international economics, development, and economic relations between industrialized and less industrialized countries. Faculty participants are drawn from the Department of Economics, the Harvard Kennedy School, the Harvard Business School, as well as other departments and schools within the University and from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Graduate students studying development economics who are entering the job market present their work in progress during the fall semester. The papers presented are available before each talk and are usually posted on the course website. Faculty members and graduate students from neighboring universities, as well as those from other institutions, regularly attend the workshop.

The seminar is organized jointly with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology economics department.
