Marc Chandler ’82 shared advice on how students can distinguish themselves in a competitive marketplace during a forum hosted by the School of Business and Entrepreneurship. Chandler said that succeeding in any field requires thinking critically, speaking and writing well, and mastering basic quantitative and computer skills. He currently serves as senior vice president, foreign exchange, at Brown Brothers Harriman in New York. Chandler was a transfer from Shimer College and then majored in political science and history at North Central. He later earned a master’s degree in American history from Northern Illinois University and a master’s degree in international political economy at University of Pittsburgh. He credits Shimer for teaching him to constantly test a hypothesis. Since the 1990s, he has taught classes in political economy at New York University. He’s also published “Making Sense of the Dollar” and “Political Economy of Tomorrow” and frequently appears on television business news programs.
