UWM alum takes passion for policy to Washington, D.C.

UW-Milwaukee alum Sumit Agarwal is a professor of economics and finance at Georgetown University. Being in the heart of American policy is perfect for his research and his passion — a passion that bloomed at UWM.

Agarwal has been featured by numerous media outlets, including the BBC, CNBC and Fox, and his research is widely cited in leading newspapers and magazines such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Economist and the U.S. President’s Report to Congress.

Agarwal received the distinguished alumni achievement award at the UWM Alumni Association’s 2017 awards evening.

He earned three degrees at UWM: a bachelor’s in computer science in 1993, a master’s in 1994 and a Ph.D. in economics in 1999.
