The Covid-19 economic crisis hit Massachusetts hard in 2020, with customers staying home, stores closing, and businesses having to lay off employees: At one point in July, the state had the highest unemployment rate in the country. At the same time, Isenberg students saw their work experience opportunities decline as hiring freezes and declines in the job market took hold.
The UMass Amherst chapter of the Smart Woman Securities organization, which focuses on women in the finance industry, put together an online curriculum for community public school students called “Making Cents of Finance.”
In the U.S. News & World Report rankings published this week, Isenberg has climbed into the top 30 of the nation’s premier public business school undergraduate programs, moving up four slots from 34th last year.
Senior Adam Syme has worked with with Holyoke Community College's Champions Mentorship Network to share his own knowledge and experience about transferring to UMass and Isenberg with a first-year student.
Each Isenberg department has chosen a senior from the Class of 2021 to share a video speech for the May 14 online graduation celebration. Read about all seven outstanding senior speakers here:
