Economics, Class of 2000

I consider my economics degree from ISU the real foundation of my career. The depth and breadth of the the coursework I was able to study has continued to serve me well as I have progressed throughout each stage of my professional journey. The professors at ISU challenged me to think critically and analytically and those two skills have been most important in the business world that I work in. I would highly recommend an economics degree from ISU to anyone interested in challenging themselves academically and interested in entering and succeeding in a wide variety of fields.
