Noah Miller
Rutgers University

Noah Miller is one of our newest members here at IAES and he is the first ever student member that we’ve highlighted as our member of the month. He’s currently a first year student pursuing his undergraduate’s degree at Rutgers University and he has big plans for his future in economics. This November he will be taking the General Securities Representative Exam or Series 7 exam, which will be one of the proudest moments in his life because in order to take this exam you must be sponsored by a member firm of either Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or a self-regulatory organization (SRO). This is not an opportunity afforded to many undergraduates but upon completion he’ll be licensed to trade within the United States. Afterwards he hopes to attain an internship this summer working in the investment banking industry. Noah may just be starting out in the economics field but we expect much to come from him and that’s why we’re happy to have him as our Member of the Month for November.

Why did you become a member of the International Atlantic Economic Society?:

My passion for economics drove me to immerse myself with others of the same interest. I see this opportunity as a chance to learn from and befriend distinguished individuals in an increasingly appealing area of interest for me. Not to mention, this organization exposes me to unique economic theories and ideas that otherwise may not have ever crossed my mind.

What do you find most enjoyable about your membership?:

That’s an easy one. The sheer exposure and accessibility to many of the members is unparalleled. IAES provides all the necessary resources for anyone, even an undergraduate student like myself, to connect with very intelligent, friendly people that are interested in talking and sharing their knowledge (which may I add, economists LOVE doing).

Have you held any notable positions within the IAES, (Officer, Board of Editiors, Program Committee, etc.) if so, when?:

Not yet. However, I am interested in developing a position within IAES that fosters economic empowerment amongst teenagers and young adults.

What types of projects/research are you working on and what inspired/motivated you to pursue that interest?:

Currently, I am researching the causes of irrationality in the U.S. equity markets and am seeking a way to quantify these findings. Since I am pursuing a career in sales and trading, this project could have practical real-world applications and allow traders to better anticipate the actions of fellow investors.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering entering your line of work/field of study?:

Stay focused. Since I am pursuing a career in investment banking, the competition is as fierce as can be. In order to better your chances of breaking into Wall Street, cast aside any trivial distractions and focus your aim on the end goal. It is difficult, if not impossible, to succeed in the industry without determination, ambition, and perseverance.

Favorite hobbies:

Playing golf, chess, and traveling are a few of my favorites.
