The Department of Economics is offering a Research Fellow Program for Fall 2013. The Research Fellows Program is an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain experience applying economic knowledge to the production of market research valued by businesses. The program constitutes a “practice internship” - students can stay on campus but still get the opportunity to engage in research activity that they might do as an intern or an entry level employee working at a consulting firm.
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.
