Meet the Advisory Board Members

The Boston College Master of Science in Applied Economics was designed in close collaboration with industry economic leaders who represent a wide variety of organizations throughout a range of sectors such as finance, healthcare, insurance, and the public sector.  The involvement of these leading employers in data and economics has enabled Boston College to provide the next generation of online learning: employer-aligned education. Our advisory board members provided critical input into the design of the curriculum and they continue to be actively involved in many aspects of the applied economics program.
