Maryna Ivets, an economics major finishing her B.A., won first place for her paper Wage Differentials between Natives and Immigrants in the undergraduate paper competition at the New York State Economics Association (NYSEA) annual conference on October 6, 2012. Her paper documents differences in wages by country of origin and the extent to which these differences are due to differences in education and other individual characteristics.

When asked what she learned from the experience, Maryna said “the sky is the limit: 5 years ago when I first moved here I didn’t think I’d be winning a contest where I’d be presenting in English.” Maryna, who emigrated to the U.S. from Belarus in 2007, plans to attend graduate school and hopes to work at the Federal Reserve as an economist.

The New York State Economics Association is one of the oldest associations of professional and academic economists in the United States. Since its founding in 1948, it has promoted economic education and scholarship in New York State. In addition to Maryna, Hunter was proud to have three Master’s students in Economics presenting at the conference, pictured in the photograph with Maryna.
