Winning Analyses

Hamline School of Business students took first and second place in the economic communication category during the annual undergraduate competition sponsored by the Minnesota Economic Association (MEA).

Andrew Argeros, Ryan Brauer and Jake Dujmovic won first place for “MLB Team Success: Offense vs. Defense.”

Briana Berninghaus, Lindsey Hawk and Devon Stuhlsatz came in second for “State Characteristics & Carbon Emissions.”

The students developed the poster presentations in Professor Stacie Bosley’s econometrics class during the 2019-2020 academic year. The winning students have studied economics and data analytics.

“It is important that our students understand how to convey complex economic information and statistical analyses so I assign collaborative projects that require students to apply what they are learning to a topic of interest to them,” said Bosley. “The experience of developing and submitting a project to a competition and winning is a resume builder and it will help these students become more confident, which will serve them well in their careers.”

In addition to monetary prizes and recognition from a professional economics organization, the students have free admission to the 2020 MEA annual conference on October 23.

The MEA is an organization of business and economic professionals and college economics professors. MEA's primary purposes are the advancement of economic knowledge and the economics profession. The MEA holds a conference every fall on current economic issues and sponsors a paper contest for college students, in collaboration with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.
