苏珊选择了澳门新葡新京官方, she said, 因为它对学术的奉献, 更小的班级规模和学术支持服务, and her decision to major in Economics stemmed from her interests in mathematics, 统计学和社会科学推理.

“Majoring in Economics has exposed me to the fundamental principles of economics and taught me how to apply statistical reasoning in an economic setting,” she said. “I was able to apply them during my internship with a Michigan supply company, DFarm, 密歇根州立大学. 实习期间, I analyzed agricultural grain production and export in countries in sub-Saharan Africa. My research focused on finding supply chain solutions for the region.”

After graduation, she plans to pursue a master’s degree in Market Research, and nurture her passion for market research analysis and socioeconomic inequalities, she added.

“I hope that one day I will be able to help economic policymakers understand how society impacts their decisions,” she said.
