"Economics at Work" is an alumni speaker series. All students are welcome and able to register. Invited speakers will tell their story; including their career path, an explanation of what they actually do, and insight into how their economics major has defined and plays a role in their career path. In this way, students will get a perspective on the inspirational career paths of alumni (their personal “stories”) and substantive real-life examples of the role economics has played in alumni careers.

Course Requirements:

Evaluation of students is based entirely on the submission of regular writing assignments. Successfully completing the writing assignments depends on your active participation in the course at the designated time. [Students who will regularly be unable to attend the Friday session should not enroll in this course. This includes students with University sanctioned absences.]

Intended Audience:

Economics at Work is intended for students who are interested in learning about a variety of career opportunities for economics majors. Freshmen and sophomores may use this class to explore whether an economics major best suits their interests and goals. Juniors and seniors who are economics majors will benefit from the information and networking opportunities.

Class Format:
