Pathways to Success
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the demand for trained, competent economists is expected to grow 14% from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for similar occupations.
In partnership with global economic consulting company Compass Lexecon, the Kautz-Uible Economics Institute aims to help meet that future demand of economists by attracting and developing a diverse talent pool, right here in Cincinnati.
The Pathways to Success Initiative supports Pell-eligible students who have been historically underrepresented in the economics sector. The institute will offer scholarships and study-related travel opportunities while Compass Lexecon will offer job-related training and internships so that participants are prepared for a successful career in economics.
Stay tuned for more information as this initiative kicks off in fall 2021.
