The University of Edinburgh Economics Society aims to provide Academic, Career, Social and real Research experiences. We are one of the largest student run organisations in Scotland, with over members 800 from 132 different degrees.
Broadly, we operate in four main categories:
1. Providing stimulating academic opportunities and insights which are out of the ordinary curriculum or add to that which is already being taught.
2.Educating our members about the career opportunities available to them, and enhancing their employability through collaboration with corporate sponsors and the Careers Service.
3. Delivering a variety of social events for our members and working to develop a community feel within the Society, such as, our annual Ball, our charity casino night and many more.
4. Our new Research initiative allows students interested in applying and developing their analytical skills to engage in real research projects, often with top companies.
We achieve this by organising various weekly, annual and one-off events throughout the year, and by offering a wider support network through all of our projects as a whole.
