Economic Club of Minnesota

Thanks to a generous donation from Paul (Class of ’87) and Michelle Koch, students from Economics and Management have been able to attend the regular luncheon gatherings of the Economic Club of Minnesota. The gatherings feature a hospitality hour where guests have an opportunity to meet and network, followed by a luncheon with a distinguished speaker.   Speakers in 2014-15 included a wide range of experts, including Fortune-500 CEOs (Chevron, Ecolab), the heads of Central banks both domestic and foreign (New York Fed, Bank of Japan), cabinet-level government officials (Secretary of the Treasury, U.S. Trade Ambassador), and others. With Paul and Michelle’s gift, three students, accompanied by an E/M faculty member, are able to attend each of the 7-9 gatherings throughout the academic year, an experience that all have appreciated, enjoyed, and learned from.

This picture of Carl Neumann was taken at the Economic Club of Minnesota luncheon on September 10th, 2015. Carl is with Professor John Taylor from Stanford University, the distinguished speaker for that day's program.

Along with Carl, also attending were Andrew Brandt, Professor Paul Estenson, and Matt Glaser pictured below (from left to right).
