The UNSW Economics Society (EcoSoc) is the leading Economics student organisation in Australia. It is based within the Australian School of Business (ASB) at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. We welcome all students who are studying economics or are interested in economic issues. Our vision is to provide our members with academic support, careers information and interactive social networks for students studying any economics or commerce subject.
We hold a variety of careers, academic and social events throughout the year in order to help develop a sense of community and to give students and members the best opportunity in university and in entering the workforce. Our two flagship projects are: the UNSW Economics Careers Day, an annual careers fair with information stalls and individual sponsor firm presentations; and the RBA Economics Competition, an annual national essay competition sponsored by the Reserve Bank of Australia. But that’s not all! In the coming year, we’ve got lots planned – Including regular meet ups for members.
This year marks the 10th Annual RBA/ESA Essay Competition run in conjunction with UNSW Economics Society. This national competition is open to all students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited Australian university.
