The Game Continues!

I'm pleased to be able to report on the events of the second day of The Econometric Game, 2015. Thanks, once again, to Nikki for providing the information for this post.

The end of Day 2 of the "Econometrics World Championships", today, saw the announcement of the ten teams that will go forward into the finals. Here they are:
  • Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
  • McGill University
  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  • Harvard University
  • University of Amsterdam
  • Maastricht University
  • Aarhus University
  • University of Economics, Prague
  • University of Copenhagen
  • University of Antwerp
Great to see the McGill team doing well.

Nikki mentioned that there were loud cheers as each of the advancing teams was announced - especially in the case of the University of Copenhagen team (last year's winner). As you can see from the above list, they had to wait until nearly the end of the announcement before they knew their fate.

I also understand that the hosts (University of Amsterdam) are now in party mode - I bet they're not alone!
