"I was shaped very heavily by both the HNGR program, as well as by challenging economics courses like Economic Growth and Development and Health Economics. I was most heavily influenced by a few outstanding professors and staff from the Business and Economics Department who challenged me to take principles I saw throughout both Scripture and the study of economics and combine them into a worldview and actions that could have a real impact on people around me." - Andy Koetz '14
