Cost: $20   Length: 1 Week
Dates: July 20, 2014 - July 26, 2014
Status: In Session

Mises University From Anywhere!

Two ways to participate:

1. watch the free live stream on YouTube; or

2. enroll in Virtual Mises University for more in-depth participation.

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we can offer all of the benefits of VMU enrollment for only $20!

For almost thirty years, Mises Institute scholars have presented Mises University, a world-class, week-long, intensive mini-university in Austrian economics. Virtual Mises University is for students, professionals, business people, absolutely anyone, anywhere who is interested in the pursuit of economic truth.

Key lectures will be streamed live on YouTube here. Basic live streamed lectures also will be recorded and posted for later viewing. Enrollment is not required to watch and listen free on YouTube.

Anyone who desires a more in-depth experience can enroll in Virtual Mises University for $20. As an enrolled student, you can review and download lecture slides, utilize a fully hyper-linked list of all required readings (just like the on-site attendees), participate in dedicated social and academic forum (for lively interaction and discussion with fellow VMU students), and earn a certificate of participation.

Tentative Lecture Schedule

Certificate of Participation

To qualify for the certificate of participation, VMU students must post at least ten substantive questions or comments to the academic forum, an online discussion area monitored by Institute staff. Access to the academic forum is available only to students who enroll; those who follow the free lectures on YouTube but do not enroll will not have access to the forum nor qualify for the certificate of participation.
