"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.
Evaluation of students will be entirely on the basis of their paper, attendance, and summaries.
Students in ECON 108 MUST BE enrolled in ECON 101.
