Departmental Honors




After thorough discussions with my senior academic advisor, Dr. Grange, and the Honors advising department, I decided to conduct my honors senior project on a topic that involved both my educational training and my professional activities. The project addresses the issue that most students outside the college of business do not understand investments. For the past 3 years I have been employed as an intern with Northwestern Mutual Financial Network. In this capacity I have had opportunities to meet with a wide variety of students looking for financial and investment advice. I observed that there was a general lack of investment knowledge among these students. My senior project was centered on providing a forum for students to gain free financial investment advice.
