For those that study economics, or have any interest in the subject, you are looking at THE society to join! It will cost you absolutely nothing, and you can get involved in all of the following:
The Warwick Economics Society Speaker Series aims to provide our members with access to world- renowned speakers from across the economics, politics and business spectrums. We hope that by providing the opportunity to interact with experts in their respective fields our members will be kept abreast of world developments; and inspired to go on and shape the economic landscape. This year our members can look forward to hearing from Tim Hartford and Marc Stears, among many others!
With the support of our sponsors, Citi, Nomura and EY, we are able to organise frequent events and insights into a variety of different career paths. This includes the famous Spring Week Panel in Term 1, where representatives from our sponsors come to share share tips about the application process. We also host an array of formal and informal networking events with representatives from prominent firms.
We provide an excellent platform to meet, socialise and network with fellow students of similar interests. The society hosts a huge range of events throughout the year, including several Fresher Socials in Term 1 to help first years make new friends, as well as a Summer Party in Term 3 to celebrate the end of the year!
Warwick Economics Society organise both a domestic tour in Term 1 and a foreign tour in Term 2, which provides another great opportunity to meet other members and course mates. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, we are able to subsidise the cost substantially, allowing you to visit amazing places and make new friends all for a hugely discounted price! This year we are travelling to Cardiff on our Domestic Tour, with our International Tour destination yet to be confirmed!
On Feburary 18th, Warwick Economics Society will host it’s annual ball, where we are all able to come together to celebrate a great year before the stress of exams takes over!
Our 2 football teams compete in the Saturday and Sunday Intermural Leagues, which we are aiming to win this year! Also we have a netball squad, which competes in a friendly but reasonably competitive league every week.
We offer members the opportunity to become more engaged within their local and global communities. Through our food & clothing drives, volunteering programs, new Microfinance scheme, and fundraising events for impactful non-profits, we hope to enact positive change in the lives of the socioeconomically disadvantaged. This year we have also partnered with Unicef and are participating in joint events, such as Fast-24 where society members fasted for 24 hours in an attempt to raise money for malnourished children in Liberia.
