The UCLA Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) announces an essay competition as a pre-contest to the third annual Economist and Shell Writing Prize competition. This year's topic "How much freedom should we trade for our security?" dovetails nicely with CIBER's goal to increase interdisciplinary thinking among business and humanities students.
UCLA CIBER contest entries will be judged by Richard Roll, professor at the Anderson School, and Jack Hirshleifer, professor of economics.
First prize is $2000, and second prize is $1000.
All UCLA students, both graduate and undergraduate, are eligible to apply. The UCLA CIBER contest deadline is July 15.
