Before beginning a career in bookkeeping, Owen Sinclair attended the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia where he received a bachelor of arts in economics in 1984. Owen Sinclair also attended the Zicklin School of Business at City University of New York – Baruch College where he earned an MBA in Finance in 2008.

The Zicklin School of Business – Baruch College Department of Economics and Finance features a think tank known as the Center for the Study of Business and Government (CSBG). The purpose of the research organization is to conduct quantitative, theoretically grounded analysis of a wide range of economic and social issues.

The analysis conducted by the CSBG helps to sharpen the decision-making process for those shaping public policy regarding the labor market, Social Security reform, and federal budget issues. The research conducted by the CSBG often results in articles published in professional and academic journals, along with being presented for discussion at the center’s bi-annual Robert Weintraub Memorial Lecture.
