As I read "The Man Behind
Money", a book on Alan Greenspan, I caught a glimpse of the Columbia University in earlier days. Greenspan attended the Columbia University in the late 1940s and during this
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 prospect
of researching with the professors at Columbia.
