What internship opportunities
Do students and faculty
work together on research projects?
Do students present research
findings at national conferences?
internship opportunities are available?
Several Western students have gained valuable
hands-on training through internships at the St. Joseph Area
Chamber of Commerce, Western Admissions Office and Gray Automotive
Products Company, to name a few.
and faculty work together on research projects?
Few schools in the nation promote undergraduate
student research as aggressively as Western. Working one-on-one
with professors on summer research projects, students have
researched the economics of distance education, foreign exchange
rate movements, and similar topics. Recently, a small group
of students worked with an Economics professor to compile a
database of statistics describing the historical path of economic
development as well as the current state of the St. Joseph
present research findings at national conferences?
For two years in a row, a senior Economics major has been
invited to present his/her research findings at an international
business conference. At both conferences, the Western student
was the only undergraduate presenter. Nick Limle attended
the conference in January in Orlando, and presented his research
study entitled “The Trade Implications
of the Foreign Exchange-Rate Forecasting.”
