Participating countries

The Economics Olympiad was established in 2016 with the goal to fill the gap in teaching economics and finance at high schools. During the following 3 years, it became the biggest competition in economics and finance in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with over 20,000 students and more than 550 schools taking part each year. Since 2019, the Economics Olympiad is also organized in Hungary and we are working intensively on spreading the project to other countries.

We want to cooperate on our expansion with institutions which are capable of organizing and raise funding for such competition and able to involve as many students in their country as possible.
