Graduate Experience:

“My experience at UMaine was a great one.  The rigor of the econometrics courses, along with the experience of using a range of different software packages was helpful.  Another benefit was the emphasis on the ability to communicate.  Class presentations and the challenge of completing a written thesis were valuable learning experiences.  On top of all of that, UMaine is a great community for students, with many caring faculty and a diverse set of students from all over the country and the world.”
