Zachary Nielsen

Economics, MA


Zachary Nielsen graduated in Spring 2018 with a Master of Arts in Applied Economics. After receiving his  B.A. in both Economics and Computer Science from the University of Las Vegas in Nevada, Zachary wanted to find a program that focused on applying his knowledge to real world settings.  Zach found that Northeastern University’s Master of Arts program in Applied Economics, with its emphasis on experiential learning, was a good fit.

Zachary’s Path

“While researching master’s programs, I found that a regular master’s was often seen to be the consolation prize for a doctorate in economics. However an applied degree takes the skills that I learn and allows me to see how they would be used in the real world.”
