In addition to exploring a career option appropriate for economics majors, students who succeed in the program will get an enthusiastic letter of recommendation from a respected business executive and be well-positioned to draw on a network of business contacts.
To create and present this opportunity, the Department of Economics has partnered with Kaulkin Ginsberg, a leading local firm providing consulting services to other businesses, particularly on mergers and acquisitions in specific sectors of the economy. Mr. Mike Ginsberg, president and CEO, will supervise the students in conjunction with Dr. Cindy Clement, Director of Undergraduate Studies for the department.
