Greenspan attended the Columbia University in the late 1940s and during his time, Columbia offered one of the best Economics programs. Similarly, as a girl who aspires to be well-versed in Economics, I find Columbia's Economics program, which focuses on an empirical approach, most appealing. The Economics department of Columbia has a long history of producing prominent economists like Arthur Burns. Consequently, it also has the benefit of experience after being through so many business cycles. I am definitely excited at the prospects of researching with the professors at Columbia.Have I answered the question? How can I improve?
