The Economics Community Partners Program serves to build relationships with employers and alumni to create a pipeline to connect talented, qualified students with prospective employers and internship opportunities; respond to market demand to develop highly-skilled workers, reduce barriers to higher education for employees currently in the workforce – specifically in fields best served by an economics degree – and reach prospective students where they are: through their place of employment.
