Economics Major Chosen as OECD Student Ambassador

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has selected economics and math major Steve Karson as student ambassador for the University of Texas at Austin.  

The mission of OECD is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world and provide a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. Its 34 member countries span the globe, from North and South America to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.


Steve’s role as ambassador is to increase awareness of OECD’s data and research in the UT academic and local communities.
