One Ball State Day is becoming a tradition which inspires and unites the University community. During this time of national and world-wide crisis, that has never been truer. The Miller College of Business is incredibly proud of the passion and resilience of our Ball State students. Should you feel compelled to support the next generation of Cardinal alumni, please consider a gift to the Jack Beyerl Student Emergency Aid fund on One Ball State Day. Funds to specifically support Miller students are listed for your consideration as well. From the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of every student, thank you.
The Department of Economics encourages student involvement in activities outside of the classroom. Your gifts to the department help make them possible. We have students who join our Fed Challenge class in where our faculty train and coach them to participate in the National Fed Challenge competition held in Chicago every fall. College Fed Challenge is a team competition for undergraduate students. Teams analyze economic and financial conditions and formulate a monetary policy recommendation, modeling the Federal Open Market Committee.
Our Econ Club students take trips to Chicago to visit financial institutions to learn more about real-world applications they are learning in the classroom. They travel to the Statehouse every year to meet with local and state politicians to gain a better understanding of our laws and it all applies to Economics.
For Econ in Motion, a film project led by Dr. Cecil Bohanon, students do all the work from the making of the film to acting, directing to editing.The films then are presented to the University and the local community and made available to educators world-wide at the YouTube website Econ in Motion. The films range from short clips that illustrate economic concepts, to narrative stories that illustrate economic ideas to longer documentary-style films that cover big economic topics like the Scottish Enlightenment and the Dutch Tulip Bulb Mania. Many of the films have invited to film fests—the site has garnered over 90,000 views at the time of this writing.
And, the department has students who work with professors on research projects and go to different Economics conferences to help present the work. Our students have been everywhere from Chicago to Las Vegas presenting research with our faculty. It is our hope that we will be able to send more students to bigger conferences as we continue to grow. Your gifts will help us do just that and continue providing these hands-on, immersive experiences for students.
