"Economics at Work" is a speaker series, intended primarily for students enrolled in ECON 101 or 102. The class will meet seven or eight Friday afternoon from 1:00-2:30 PM. Invited speakers will tell the story of how an economics concentration has defined and plays a role in their career path. In this way, students will get a dual perspective on the inspirational career paths of alumni (their personal “stories”) but also substantive real-life examples of the role economics has played in alumni careers. Class time will be reserved for Q&A. In addition, a reception afterwards will allow students to interact personally with the speaker.

Course Requirements:

Evaluation of students will be entirely on the basis of their paper, attendance, and summaries.

Intended Audience:

Students in ECON 108 MUST BE enrolled in ECON 101.
