When & Where
Economics Student Society of Australia
The Economics Student Society of Australia was founded in February 2012 at University of Melbourne by a group of friends who love economics. It is now the largest economics society of its kind in Australia, spanning across Melbourne and Monash universities. We constantly strive to push the boundaries on what a student society can achieve – to engage with members, to give them a voice, and to connect students, professionals and academics. We’re passionate about economics, and we look forward to sharing that passion with you!
