A Letter from the President

I am proud to welcome you to the University of Edinburgh Economics Society, one of the largest student-run organisations in the country. We are now celebrating our 20th year as an integral part of the student community at Scotland’s greatest University.

Over the past two years, the Society has grown and developed rapidly. We have established our Research teams, an incredibly successful initiative that has seen our students work with top companies on real-time projects. Last year, we hosted and established the inaugural Scottish Economics Conference, with Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, as our keynote speaker. All of this alongside a variety of regular meetings, academic and career support and social activities for our members. Over the next year, we will consolidate our growth in these new areas as well as expanding and developing our new careers strategy.

We have over 800 members from a variety of Economics and non-Economics degrees. Regardless of your background, if you find yourself interested in our academic, careers, social or research initiatives, come along and get involved.
