Fed Challenge Fall 2016

Register for ECON 391 in spring 2016 to prepare for that challenge.
Pre-requisite is ECON 101 and ECON 102

It is an excellent opportunity for adding experience in your resume, acquiring in-depth knowledge in economics and finance and preparing for interviews. The Fed Challenge is a competition between colleges and it is organized by the Federal Reserve. We are looking for motivated students that will graduate in December 2016 or later to participate.

It is open also to all other students interested in doing research in monetary theory and policy. It will be an excellent opportunity to improve your knowledge for interviews: the role of the Federal Reserve is crucial in financial markets.

You can always come to see me, Luc Marest, at PH306H to talk about it and register.
