North Shore Community College’s team of Economics and Finance Club students, under the leadership of Economics Professor Moonsu Han, took first place in the Boston Regional Community College Fed Challenge Competition held on November 3, 2017 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
The competition encourages the development of important skills such as research and analysis, decision-making, argument formulation, and effective communication. Participants play the role of the Federal Reserve by analyzing economic conditions and recommending an appropriate course for monetary policy.
With a 15-minute time limit, Team NSCC delivered a presentation of their views and recommendations on the economy and answered questions asked by the judges, requiring them to apply their knowledge and think on their feet.
Team members included: Douglas Alves, Revere; Max Caron, Newburyport; Daniel Lang and Matthew McManus, both from Lynn; and Isabella Repucci, Essex.
Middlesex Community College placed 2nd in the community college division and Harvard College placed first in the four-year university/college division.
