The Eagles Economics Society invites students from all majors to learn about economics and network with professors, current students, alumni, and business leaders.

During our weekly meetings, we hear from (1) current and former students about internship or work experiences; (2) local business leaders with perspectives on their industries; and (3) professors about extracurricular opportunities or the graduate school application process.

We also travel to various businesses to take tours (e.g. Gulfstream) and to conferences (e.g. American Economic Association conference) to hear the world’s leading economists speak on a range of topics.

Unless otherwise noted, all meetings take place Wednesday from 6:30-7:30pm in PCOB room 1104. Please e-mail one of the society leaders, Prof. Jeff Schiman (jschiman@georgiasouthern.edu), or Prof. Cuiping Schiman (cschiman@georgiasouthern.edu) with any questions.
