Flores-Lagunes gives advice to 2020 graduates in Syracuse.com
Alfonso Flores-Lagunes, professor of economics, says that graduate school is generally a smart option for students graduating during an economic downturn, provided they balance the added debt with demand for jobs in their desired profession. He added
that students should look for programs that help them build connections and network with future employers.
Syracuse University is offering its Class of 2020 graduates half-price on graduate school if they enroll full-time immediately.
