Welcome to the official University of Birmingham Economics Society Website
The Economics Society is more than just a departmental one, we organise career, academic and social events throughout the year to not only make university a better experience but also to help you think about the life beyond Birmingham.
With the current economic climate, jobs are harder to secure and we try our best to help boost the employability of our members. As a result of this, many of our events have a career focus. We arrange presentations from recruiters to increase our members' awareness of opportunities and also boost their chances to network. We also organise skills sessions to improve applications and interview style as well events designed to simulate what jobs are really like!
This year we are looking to build relationships with employers which will help give our members an edge in this difficult graduate market. We would also like to broaden our academic side and encourage speakers to talk on arguably the most turbulent economic situation of our generation.
Although the society can be very career focussed, we do have a 'work hard-play hard' attitude and therefore our socials and sports are important too! We believe that balance is key so look out for next football trials and the autumn social calendar.
