The student experience at Northeastern is more than the department’s academic programs. It includes the opportunity to participate in a variety of student organizations in which students get to know their peers and faculty outside the classroom and often have the opportunity to develop lifetime friendships and networking opportunities.  The organizations often involve the integration of what the students have learned in the classroom with the real world outside of Northeastern.


The Economics Society meets every Tuesday, 7-8 pm, Snell Library 031

The NU Economics Society is Northeastern’s premier economics interest group run entirely by Northeastern undergraduates. It consists of economics majors, minors, and anyone else that expresses an interest in economics. The Economics Society is a venue for social activities, intellectual pursuits, and professional development, all deriving from the courses and experiences of the undergraduate student body! It serves to promote discussion of relevant economic issues, both in the world and in the department, and encourages the spreading of social and professional opportunities and networking for any student interested in the field of economics. The Northeastern University Economics Society is the umbrella organization for student economic clubs and projects at Northeastern University.
