Professor Dale Mortensen, Nobel Laureate, 1939-2014

The MMSS Program extends its deepest condolences to the family, colleagues and former students of Professor Dale Mortensen, who died on January 9th. At the time the MMSS program started in 1978, Professor Mortensen was the department chair of Economics. In that role, he helped the late Professor Michael Dacey and Professor John Ledyard with the original organization of MMSS. Professor Mortensen taught one or more courses in the program from 1985-2005 and was Director from 1982-1984 and then again from 1992-2000. The program benefited greatly from his knowledge, leadership and guidance. Read more...

About the MMSS Program

Founded in 1978, Northwestern's unique MMSS Program allows a select group of high ability students to combine the study of social sciences with rigorous training in mathematics, statistics, and formal modeling. The program allows students gifted in mathematics to explore fields beyond math and science, and prepares them to succeed in graduate study and in a wide variety of careers in the social sciences and business. It also provides ideal preparation for students planning to enroll in one of the Kellogg Undergraduate Certificate Programs in their junior or senior year. Learn more about MMSS...
