Graduates of its undergraduate and Ph.D. programs in the Department of Economics have had an impact not only on economics but also on a wide range of industries around the world.  We are always interested in hearing from our alumni and look forward to sharing your successes. To submit a class note and read more about interacting with current economics students, please visit our Alumni page.  

To provide a sense of what our majors do immediately after Commencement, the Department of Economics conducts a senior survey in late April.  This year, 81.4% of the Class of 2019 completed the survey and informed us of plans of employment or continuing their education.  You can view the complete survey results here.  The following alumni updates are grouped by industry and were supplied with permission from members of the Class of 2019.
