Participated in the 2017 College Fed Challenge
A team of six Carthage students competed in the College Fed Challenge in November 2017.
The regional competition in Chicago allows students to investigate the state of the economy, create a policy, and see how that would affect the national economy and individual citizens. Each team then presents its research to representatives from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
Professor Catherine Lau, chair of the Accounting and Finance Department, oversees the Fed Challenge team. Carthage earned commendation for its creative approach to address excess reserves.
