THE ECONOMICS SOCIETY
The Economics Society, popularly and fondly known as the EcoSoc, is one of the most active societies of our college with a rich legacy and history. It has earned the reputation of being one of the leading societies in the country that is dedicated to the promotion of interest and awareness about matters related to economics. The prime motto of the society has always been to encourage the development of economic thought and ideas beyond the classroom.
Since the inception of the society, they have been able to achieve this through various inter-disciplinary events that include compelling quizzes, engaging debates, and paradigms replicating economies using excel and committee simulations. The events never fail to reach the eager ears of participants all around the country. From time to time, the EcoSoc has hosted eminent speakers and lectures such as Dr. Amartya Sen, Dr. Swaminathan Iyer, and Dr. Montek Singh Ahluwalia, to name a few. The Economics Society also publishes the ‘Towards Equilibrium’, the annual economic journal of the college. They also manage EconAfterHours, an online blog with articles on different topics pertaining to economics.
Every year, they host the National Economics Festival (NEF), which is their flagship event. NEF brings together economics enthusiasts from across the country and has witnessed an increase in footfall year after year. It acts as a platform for participants to explore economics and hone their skills in related fields such as finance and business through events such as guest lectures, quizzes, debates, excel simulations, and paper presentations. In addition, the society also organises an array of events in the odd semester. These comprise of academically engaging events such as excel-based events, quizzes, lectures, and event X- a surprise event that they build from scratch and work on. These events see participants from all over India and host eminent personalities as judges, panellists, and speakers.
With the pan-India participation of over 3,000 students and close to 7,000 likes on our social media handles, they actively post weekly quizzes, economic terms, and articles across our social media handles to help develop an interest and a deep understanding of the subject.
The Economics Society is an assortment of people brought together by their love for the subject. The members of the society bond over different economic concepts and ideas and strongly believe that economics is in the everyday, that there is something in economics for everybody!
