The Econ Club is a student run organization that is open to all students interested in the economy. Rui Pereira is the faculty advisor, and we gather to discuss current events in economics and host economics related events. A typical meeting consists of discussion of one or two important economics issues.
The Econ Club places a high priority on connecting students with research and job opportunities. The monthly newsletter includes information on internships and jobs. Once a month a faculty member gives a research presentation to the club members. These presentations provide students with the chance to hear about the state of current research in economics, meet professors, and inquire about research opportunities. Every year the club sponsors an alumni panel, connecting students to alumni and providing a sample of the diverse careers that economics majors can undertake. It includes both a Q&A and a networking session so that students have the opportunity to ask questions and get to know alumni.
