The University of Maryland Research Fellowship Program

BSOS_Lockup

In 2013, Kaulkin Ginsberg launched the Research Fellows Program in conjunction with the University of Maryland, College Park’s College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. Working with the Department of Economics, we’ve initiated this program to help students realize the importance of high-end research in the professional world.

Each semester, qualified undergraduate students within the Economics Association of Maryland are selected and placed into groups to collect and distill macroeconomic and qualitative data within select industries identified by Kaulkin Ginsberg. Experienced proctors oversee the students’ progression and provide support throughout the semester.At the end of the program, the students present their findings in an oral and written presentation. Our specialists review their research and prepare the information for distribution.

As trusted industry experts, we know that providing the most up-to-date data is essential for owners and  executives to make strategic decisions about growth and exit strategies. Kaulkin Ginsberg is committed to providing the latest market intelligence and continues to strive to achieve this goal. Follow the Research Fellows Program on LinkedIn for news and updates on current projects.

“Students today understand that real-world experience is a necessary complement to their academic classwork, but internships are often hard to find or squeeze into their schedules. Kaulkin Ginsberg brings an internship-like experience on campus and makes it much easier for students to see what business clients will expect of them when they join the workforce. Unlike some internships, all time spent on the Research Fellows Program is content-intensive – no clerical work, no commuting time, no fetching coffee. Students really appreciate the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge, and get detailed feedback on their work.”

Dr. Cindy Clement, Director of the Undergraduate Economics Department

“The most impressive thing I remember in my first job when I just graduated with my bachelor’s degree in economics was the huge gap between what we learned in the college and what our employers expected us to do. Today’s students know how to do research, but they need to know more about what kind of research work is deliverable to the business community. This fellowship is a really good opportunity for college students to practice what they learned and shape their sense of real business research. I used one year of consulting work and two years of graduate studying experience to figure out how to be a qualified analyst. By participating in this fellowship program, I believe those students will have a better starting point than me.”

Naibin (Eric) Yan, Finance Masters Graduate and 2013-2014 Supervisor of the Fellowship Program

“I worked full-time as a restaurant manager while attending the University of Maryland, which made traditional internships nearly impossible. Because the Research Fellows is an on-campus program that encourages students to work together and manage projects on their own, just as you would in the real world, I was able to participate and gain valuable experience that otherwise would not have been available. Through the program, I was given the opportunity to apply academic training to real-world business assignments that helped me improve my communication, research and presentation skills. I look forward to working with my fellow economics majors at the University of Maryland and helping them take that next step as they prepare to graduate and pursue their professional careers.”

Michael Thomas, Kaulkin Ginsberg Senior Associate & Director of Research and 2014-2017 Supervisor of the Fellowship Program
