My Educational Objectives

            At the end of the fall 2009 semester I hope to be a graduate from the University of Akron. I plan to graduate with a double major in economics and applied mathematics. I want to obtain a strong background in mathematics because I enjoy the mathematical portion of economics. During my senior year of college I plan on obtaining an internship and continue working in the economics field after completing my undergraduate degree. Following graduation I plan to attend The University of Akron and pursue a master in economics. After receiving my masters I may plan to pursue a Ph.D. in economics.

 My Career Goals

The ideal career path that I would like to choose would be one that deals with mathematics. I want to work with numbers to analyze economic data and use these numbers to institute economic policies. Currently my ideal job is working in the economics modeling field or working at the Federal Reserve Bank in Cleveland Ohio. I think that it would be very rewarding to contribute information that has the power to affect the everyday lives of American citizens. Another career path that I would find equally rewarding is one that deals with helping developing countries or urban cities create economic policies. I feel that this career path will entail mathematical principles and analysis of economic data and therefore would be another option that uses math and economics.
