Lehman Economics & Business Students participate in the 2015 College Fed Challenge
Four students in the Department of Economics and Business Department - Jasim Ahmed, Jigme Choerab, Jairo Guerra, and Nicholas Wilk – will be competing in the College Fed Challenge in December 2015. This is the first group from Lehman to enter the competition, and they are working under the guidance of their advisor Professor Nikolaos Papanikolaou.
As noted by the Education and Outreach division at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York;
- The College Fed Challenge is a competition designed to bring real-world economics into the classroom. Teams play the role of monetary policymakers by analyzing economic conditions and recommending a course for monetary policy.
- The College Fed Challenge is an unforgettable experience in economic analysis, monetary policy decision-making, public speaking and teamwork. Fed Challenge participants develop skills—the ability to think analytically, to make effective presentations, to work as a team, to think on their feet—that are valuable in both their academic and professional careers.
On September 18, 2015, the Lehman team with their advisor attended a macro boot camp held at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The boot camp is intended primarily for participants in the College Fed Challenge to learn about the Federal Reserve System, monetary policy, understanding the aggregate economy using data and case analysis.
