LUIGI ZINGALES: The Stigler Center, we focus on the various ways in which competition is
subverted by vested interests. Media play a crucial role in a good functioning of the market economy.
There is less and less money in news reporting. It's very hard for journalists to receive their adequate level
MADHAV V. RAJAN: We launched the Stigler Center's Journalists in Residence program back in 2017
with the aim of shaping the next generation of leaders in business reporting, giving some of the world's most
promising business journalists the tools that they need to investigate, understand, and promote
STEPHEN CARROLL: I definitely learned an awful lot during this program and things that I probably
should have known before as a business journalist, for example, learning about accounting principles
and how to read the detail in company accounts, things that I wouldn't necessarily have been able to do, particularly
at speed, before.
LUIGI ZINGALES: I think it's important to bring journalists from all over the world because one
of the goals of this program is to expose our students and our faculty to what happens around the world.
BROOKE FOX: Personally, I had never been a reporter in a foreign country. And so it was a really good opportunity for me
to learn about what is reporting like in India, what is journalism like in China right now? I mean, it was truly a global program,
and that was an education for me.
SAMUEL SANYA: Being around Chicago and going to some of the major sites and understanding the US economy was very life changing for me.
ADESOLA AFOLABI: Bull's games, the Cubs games...We went to the Andy's Jazz Club one Friday and that was really soothing.
It was just the perfect end to a very serious study week. I really enjoyed that.
And I think those are some of my really great memories that I'm going to take back home with me from Chicago.
GABRIEL BALDOCCHI: Being able to interact with the students and the faculty was definitely something that
stood out in the program to me.
TANYA THOMAS: You walk down the corridor, and you're running into Nobel Prize laureates, right? That's quite cool.
SAMUEL SANYA: There's so many seminars that we have here about so many things that are going on around the world.
When you come here, you're able to see how things happen from the inside of the business world, how people, how the executives think.
It just changes how you think as a business journalist. You leave this program with a feel for what's to come,
a deeper understanding for what is. When you go back to reporting, you're reporting more with an insider's view of things. Do apply. This is worth it.
