The Economics Department is increasing its web presence, and we’ve begun advertising the MA in Applied Economics program online in such venues as Facebook, LinkedIn, and a variety of university newspapers.


We want to keep our advertising content fresh and to draw on quotes from our alumni to help convince prospective MA students that E(conomics) at the G(reensboro) is the place to be.

For that, we need your help and we’re not above offering thank-you gifts as incentives. If you send us a tweet-length quote and we use it, you will receive a limited-edition, classic coffee mug with our heartfelt thanks.

What do you need to do to get the mug?

  • Send an email to Jean at economics at UNCG dot edu with the subject line: I want my mug!
  • Include in the body of your email your tweet, which should be fewer than 30 words long and should tell prospective students how your MA in Applied Economics has helped your career and workplace success.
  • Include the year in which you received your MA.
  • If you want us to mail your mug, include a postal address. Otherwise you’ll have to come by Bryan 464 to pick it up in person (which is okay with us).
