Six years ago, a group of Warwick students made the vision of an Emerging Markets Forum a reality with the inaugural event in 2011. After this became a sell-out success, the society has gone from strength to strength, captivating students and professionals alike by encouraging discourse on the changing global landscape.
What is WEMS
Warwick Emerging Markets Society (WEMS) provides diverse and new perspectives on the emerging economies of the world, issues from the BRICs to the MINTs are going to dictate our lives tomorrow. We cover topical issues such as economics, politics, finance, business, investment, society and development in emerging countries through a wide range of events we organised throughout the year.
2018 Marked the year of the society’s rebranding but also, more importantly, it marks its rebirth as a leaner and more performance-oriented student organization that is constantly seeking new talent and unexploited potential. In 2019/2020, We aim to launch the society to heights unseen before, with an aim of exponential growth in our events and members.
Throughout the years, our external sponsors have run skills session with us, such as CV workshops; previously, Ernst and Young, Citi and PWC provided us with many networking opportunities to our members as well as support for our other events.
