Where have all the Economics Master's students gone? The Graduate Student Career Services Team at the Career Center wanted to find out. With the help of our student intern, Shuwen Zhai, M'17 (now an alumna herself), we tracked down alums from Duke's Economics Master's programs using LinkedIn. We gathered data on where these students interned and what positions they found after grad school. There were some surprising trends in the internship and full-time position data, especially around geographic location, position title, and industries. Watch this video to learn more about what we found.
