Samantha Hariz

Class of 2026

Department: Economics

Certificate(s): Finance or Entrepreneurship

Research Interest: I am interested in engaging in comprehensive research in order to discover ways in which to improve our financial systems. An efficient way to implement change is through public policy. Therefore, to help shape the right policies, I will need to conduct extensive research to gain an understanding of our financial field from multiple perspectives. The research will equip me with a thorough understanding of the market, giving me a better opportunity to develop and propose successful policies.

Hobbies: After my undergraduate studies, I plan to go to law school. While I don't know what type of law yet, I am sure that finance will play a major role in my career. This fall, I plan on being in the pre-law society and women in economics and policy.

Hometown: Los Angeles, California
