On Nov. 1, Northwestern’s five-member Federal Reserve Challenge team won the Regional Challenge at the Federal Reserve Board of Chicago, besting 20 other colleges and universities in the Midwest.
The team went on to win third place at the National Championships at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in Washington, D.C. For the competition, each team discussed the state of the economy along with proposed Federal Reserve responses, and then took questions from a panel of Federal Reserve economists.
Two students in the Financial Economics Certificate program were on the team: Shalini Singh (WCAS) and Max Slivka (McCormick). Other team members include Brian Levin (McCormick), Daniel Wolf (WCAS) and Lucas Zalduendo (WCAS).
The students were supported by research assistance from Tughan Alioglu (WCAS), Geoffry Bery (WCAS), David Chen (WCAS), Alexander Stacy (WCAS), Gabrielle Starfield (WCAS), and Eric Zhang (WCAS). Economics Professor Mark Witte served as the team’s faculty advisor. Click here
