Lehman Economics & Business Students Win the Maiden Lane 2015 College Fed Challenge
Lehman College Department of Economics and Business wins the Maiden Lane 2015 College Fed Challenge. Students Jasim Ahmed, Jigme Choerab, Jairo Guerra, and Nicholas Wilk spent months preparing for the competition with their advisor, Dr. Nikolaos Papanikolaou, by going over monetary policy, the inner workings of the Federal Reserve System, and analyzing macroeconomic data.
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.
As winners of the Maiden Lane College Fed Challenge, Lehman College was given the opportunity by the Outreach and Educational Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to travel to Washington, D.C., at the Board of Governors and meet the Chair of the Federal Reserve System, Janet Yellen. This was an unforgettable experience for the students.
We look forward in competing in the 2016 College Fed challenge! Go Lehman!
