A National Powerhouse

News Story

Our Federal Reserve Challenge team has been dominating the competition—and the rest of the country is taking notice!

Earlier this month, Pace University won the 14th annual national College Federal Reserve Challenge held in Washington, DC, marking the third time in the past four years that Pace has returned home a national champion.

I am deeply proud of the Pace University team,” said Pace University President Marvin Krislov. “This team’s dedication and success as well as that of their professors is a great example of the experiential learning and meaningful mentorship that is the hallmark of the Pace Path. The team members are exemplary students and their drive and determination has paid off with this great victory.”

Over the past few years, Pace students have demonstrated an unmatched proficiency of US economic and monetary policy issues—beating out the likes of Harvard, Princeton, and four-time champion Northwestern for the prize, helping to establish Pace among the world’s most elite colleges and universities.

We extend our congratulations to students Klejdja Qosja ’18, Marina Testani ’18, Salil Ahuja ’19, Carly Aznavorian ’19, Scarlett Bekus ’20, Argenys Morban ’19, and Alexandra Bruno and professors Greg Colman, PhD, and Mark Weinstock, PhD.
