Math Review (Mathematical Methods)
The Economics Department at Northwestern University offers a course during the late summer that provides incoming doctoral students with the essential mathematical tools needed for their doctoral studies.  The class prepares Kellogg PhD students for the ECON 410 (Microeconomics) sequence of classes.  The summer class is called Econ 401, Mathematical Methods, but is commonly referred to as “Math Review.”  The course covers topics in topology, real analysis, optimization, linear algebra and probability theory.

Math Review 2017 begins on Wednesday, August 23, with a lecture from 
9am to 12pm. After August 23, lectures will be held daily from 9am to 12pm except on Wednesdays. Discussion Sessions will be held daily from 1pm to 2pm and on Wednesdays from 9am to 12pm. Math Review concludes on Friday, September 15. Please refer to the 2017 syllabus for more information. Math Review will be held in room # 1410 at the Global Hub. 

While any student can attend Math Review, the course is primarily for students in Accounting Information & Management, Finance, Managerial Economics & Strategy, Marketing (quantitative students), and Operations Management.  The class is tuition-free. There is no formal registration through Northwestern; however,
the expectation is that you attend all sessions and take the final exam.

It is held Monday through Friday, 2:00 to 3:00, taught this summer by Joseph Hardwick in room # 1410 at the Global Hub. Here is a copy of the topics covered previously.
