Isaiah Kuch, ’07
In Isaiah’s time at La Salle he applied his economic skills while interning for an Insurance Broker. He went on to attend graduate school at Indiana University, where he studied public finance, economic development, and policy analysis. In his years at Indiana he worked as a City of Indianapolis Urban Fellow. He currently is working for the City of Indianapolis Local Public Improvement Bond Bank (ILPIBB), as a project manager. In 2011 Isaiah taught a public financial management course to undergraduate junior and seniors at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, and hopes to continue teaching at the collegiate level in the future.
Isaiah’s comments about Economics and the Economics Department:
“I majored in economics because it is an interdisciplinary subject that shapes one’s thinking about other fields. In other words there is economics in everything.”
“In a top public affairs school like Indiana University, economics is the foundation for discussing many public policy related issues. So having majored in economics at La Salle I was one of the very few who were mostly well-informed on a wide array of economic topics… that made me appreciate more, the decision to have majored in economics at La Salle.”
“The beauty of working here (ILPIBB) is that my economics, public finance, and policy analysis skills are directly needed and therefore, vital to accomplishing my tasks.”
