EMU economics experience

"The economics program at EMU gave me the tools to be a competitive applicant in the FDIC recent graduate hiring program. My own drive, work ethic and execution of the requirements to achieve my current position would not have, by themselves, been enough to get me here. The field of economics versed me in the trade and exchange of all different types of assets and ideas. Principles of economics are seen in nearly every discipline offered in higher education. For every end pursued, there is a cost imposed on the individual pursuing that end. My study of economics has taught me to look for the costs, benefits and incentives presented by all types of situations that I face every day in and out of the workplace."

"EMU's Economics department offers a small, tightly-knit group of professors that service a moderately-sized group of students. I always have thought that the ratio of instructor to student in each course is more than adequate and the professors are very helpful and available. The professors truly love the discipline of economics and it is seen in every lecture that they give. This passion for teaching that they displayed throughout my college career really kept me going and drove me to achieve."
