PhD Admissions
Applicant Information Weekend

We invite a select group of admitted applicants to learn more about our program through the Graduate Information Weekend. During this 3-day event students will have the opportunity to meet faculty members, as well as current graduate students.

The program is designed to provide admitted candidates with insight into our research and the culture of our department. It will also be an opportunity to tour the Northwestern campus, explore the Evanston community, and tour the City of Chicago through the various planned activities.

IEMS PhD Information Weekend for admitted students will begin the evening of February 23, 2017, concluding Saturday afternoon, February 25, 2017.
