Founded in 2017, Women in Business’ mission is “to develop a community of determined women pursuing business or other related fields at Seton Hall University to serve as a support system to help each other reach career goals from an early start.”
October is National Economic Education Month. To honor this, University Libraries is spotlighting Matthew James, a current Stillman School of Business student enrolled in the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Quantitative Economics and Econometrics program.
Kayla Glynn, Business and Data Librarian, asked Matthew how his economic education has impacted his everyday life and how Walsh Library and Seton Hall University have supported his journey. After reading Matthew’s responses, maybe you’ll be inspired to pick an economics book from Walsh Library!
- Why did you choose your major?
Matthew’s original major was not Quantitative Economics and Econometrics but after his first economics class, with Professor Danielle Zanzalari, Ph.D., he realized that economics was a field he enjoyed learning about and a discipline he could excel at; the perfect combination. Matthew said growing up he “had a lot of questions. Not many answers, and I think economics has allowed me to answer a lot of those questions.” He encourages people to take economics classes because “Economics can help you in a conceptual way. But having the math to back it up to support it, I think it’s exactly what employers are looking for.”
- How have you experienced economic theory impacting your everyday life?
Matthew now works part-time helping his parents run their business and during COVID the landscape got very difficult. Despite the difficulties, Matthew explained that because of his economics background he understood “why things were happening, which was exciting for me at least.” Aside from work, Matthew values economics’ impacts in his everyday life because it has changed “the way that I make decisions” since knowing the concepts “can make you ask the right questions…”
- How has Walsh Library supported your journey?
Walsh Library has provided an environment where “everyone is being productive.” You can find Matthew studying on the 4th floor because it provides him with a quiet alternative to his dorm. Matthew explained that “the study rooms are my favorite part” because they offer a space that fosters learning.
- How has Seton Hall University supported your journey?
Matthew said that the most valuable resource at Seton Hall University are the people. He advises every student to build a relationship with professors in their program. Matthew has good reason for this advice since, as he explained, “the research that I’m doing now is a direct result” of the relationships he has built through his journey here at Seton Hall. Given his goal of achieving a Ph.D., building and maintaining relationships with colleagues in the field will no doubt be beneficial.

On February 12, 2020, approximately 300 students, faculty and guests attended the 14th Annual Jim and Judy O’Brien Capital Markets Colloquium, which was held at the Walsh Library. The colloquium, co-sponsored by the University Libraries and the Stillman School of Business, was held for the first time at the library, which proved to be an excellent location for the day’s events.
15 concurrent workshops ran from 9:30 a.m.to 6:15 p.m. Some highlights of the day’s events included an opportunity to apprentice with a representative from Napier Park, a credit platform that has 14 billion dollars in assets; a workshop on the growing sector of e-sports; and the dress rehearsal of the 3-time champion CFA Team ((note Seton Hall has won the Chartered Financial Analyst Research Challenge 3 times and placed 11 times).
Jim O’Brien ’82 and Ned May delivered the keynote address. Jim O’Brien is the Senior Managing Partner of Napier ParkGlobal Capital and the recipient of the 2013 Many Are One Humanitarian Award from Seton Hall.
