The University of Birmingham's Economics Society - Econsoc - is a departmental student society, organising academic, career and social events throughout the year to not only enhance your university experience but also to help you think about the life beyond Birmingham. Check out our useful links page to keep up to date with news, internships and careers! Follow our pages above to keep up to date with what's going on! With the emergence of a dynamic global economy, jobs are harder to secure and we try our best to help boost the employability of our members. We have many career focused events including talks from top recruiters and skills sessions to help improve the quality of applications of our members. Our aim is to provide access to the information needed to be successful after university and give the opportunity to network with like-minded students and professionals. The distinguished lecture series gives insight into many different aspects of economics from a broad range of speakers with extensive knowledge.
Most importantly, our society has 'work hard-play hard' attitude, we encourage our members to get involved socially and network with each other through our various socials, balls, quizzes and events. We also have our very own netball and football teams who play in inter-mural leagues on campus! Our socials and sports are equally important as the career side and allow our members to meet in a relaxed, enjoyable and informal environment.
