GPA:
  • 3.38 GPA
  • Coursework in Strategy and Problems in Management Course
  • Coursework in Statistics and Econometrics
  • Coursework in Advance Microeconomic and Macroeconomic Analysis
  • Coursework in Corporate Financial Management
  • Projects:
    • Sustainable Happiness and Governance Across Three Nations: Chile, Russia, and the United States.  Utilized the World Values Survey to examine aggregate levels of happiness affecting well-being through individual perceptual attitudes of trust in governance in Chile, Russia, and the United States to sustaining aggregate social and economic conditions. Descriptive, inferential, and regression analysis were applied via SPSS to examine country variables and constructed variables of financial well-being, happiness, decision making, perceptions of government, democracy, and trust.  Findings were positive for lower levels of trust towards governance in transitional economies of Chile and Russia versus the United States yet levels of aggregate happiness decreased with greater freedom of choices possibly as result of sensory overload.
    • Honors Thesis: Millenium Development Goals and Fragile States:  Perceptions of Foreign Aid Effectiveness and Poverty Alleviation.  Four quantitative data sets were used (World Values Survey, OECD Donor Data, OECD Major Recipient Data, and the Failed State Index) to analyze the effectiveness of the MDG's program targets and to examine perceptions of foreign aid donations in alleviating poverty.  Findings were conclusive in differences in how much aid should be given and that most recipients perceive the United Nations rather than their national governments as who should decide aid distribution.
    • Non-Standard Employment, Flexibility, and Stigma: An Analysis of the United States and the European Union, 1998 to 2008.  Three independent quantitative data sets were utilized (U.S. Department of Labor Data, Eurostat Data, and the World Values Survey) to examine employment status, educational level, income, gender differences, and intrinsic and extrinsic values in non-standard employment between the United States and 14 European Union participating member countries, ages 15 to 64 from 1998 to 2008. Data was compressed from original files to Excel spreadsheets and SPSS and descriptive, inferential methods, and regression was applied for hypotheses testing and analysis. Findings were conclusive for a relationship between engaging in non-standard employment, despite Bachelor's level or higher level of education and gender differences, due to an inability to find employment.
