“Because of the patient instruction and mentorship from the Department of Economics faculty, I have the privilege of thinking about both macro and micro fundamentals, the machinations of capital markets, and even the basics of supply and demand in my new position. I get to do this every day, which is what I wanted when I first embarked on my collegiate journey. Thank you.”
