The goal of EFL is to give promising students the skills to be more effective leaders and to teach them how to employ economic analysis when considering difficult public policy choices. The EFL program is competitive with approximately two applicants applying for each available space. College admission officers have commented that students who attend selective programs, such as Economics for Leaders, make more competitive applicants.
