Our Research Events expose members to economic research, research tools, and econometric skills as students dig deeper into key issues across many economics subdisciplines. In the past, our UGA professors have presented independently, and on panels, about anti-trust policy, gender birth gaps, crime deterrence, political machines, discriminatory admissions processes in higher education, and so much more. Students interested in a career in academia or in completing undergraduate research should be especially aware of these opportunities as a way to connect with potential research mentors.
Our Professional Development events provide students with marketable skills and support so they can reach their full potential. Past events have included consulting case workshops, graduate school panels, and workshops on resumes, cover letters, interviewing, and public speaking
Our Corporate Events connect employers with students, helping them recruit for internships and full-time opportunities. We host employers across industries such as banking, non-profit, public policy, consulting, and more to address the diverse paths available to economics majors. Previous companies include Bain & Company, EY, and Mather Economics.
Our Social Events help facilitate a community around economics. Past events include trivia nights, book clubs, community service, and faculty mixers.
Established in 2020, the Associates Program exposes underclassmen to graduate-level economics research. Students in the program spend a formative semester learning econometrics and how to read academic papers. This program is ideal for a student looking to dive deeper into the field of economics and gain experience analyzing studies, presenting research, and thinking about issues from a new perspective.
Our Mentorship Program matches undergraduate students with experienced peer mentors, to enable students to form bonds and lift each other up towards their professional, academic, and personal goals. We especially encourage underclassmen, transfer students, and new students to the major to apply to be mentored. Mentors assist students in navigating classes, the Terry application process, areas of emphasis, graduate programs, career goals, and internship and job applications.
