The Economics Society invites speakers throughout the year and hosts enriching debates for students to enhance the understanding of economic topics beyond the classroom. We hold academic debates by well-known researchers and create insight into the most pressing economic issues.
We host speakers from the finance industry who advise students on various career prospects. The society organises multiple workshops throughout the year, such as the popular Excel workshop in collaboration with the Information Services department.
This year the society works to deliver programming sessions on top of already running workshops. We collaborate with EconPALS and collectively aim to enhance academic experience at the university. Additionally, we maintain a close relationship with the teaching staff at the University of Edinburgh and provide academic assistance for the students during their studies.
