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 2020 is scheduled to begin on August 25, 2020.  Math Review typically holds a lecture daily from 
9am to 12pm. Discussion Sessions are typically held daily from 1pm to 2pm and on Wednesdays from 9am to 12pm. Please refer to the 2019 syllabus for more information. 

While any student can attend Math Review, the course is primarily for students in Accounting Information & Management, Finance, Financial Economics, 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.
