Welcome to the Economics Student Society of Australia, more fondly known as ESSA!
So exactly who is ESSA? ESSA was founded in 2012 by a group of friends at the University of Melbourne who love Economics! During our first years of University we knew we loved economics, but had no idea where a major in Economics could take us. And VOILA, ESSA was born.
We are here to help you figure out how Economics can help you. We’re here to provide you with a support network, filled with both students and industry contacts. We’re here to provide you with a contact point to learn more about how Economics impacts you. We’re here to provide you with a forum of discussion.
We hope to provide you with that extra support we craved for when finding our feet at University.
Whether you’re in your first year or your last year, we hope to be a friend to you.
Now, enough about us… what about you? Click on more, go on, you know you want to.
What do you love about Economics? What stories do you have to tell? Do you think Greece should leave the Eurozone? How much longer will China’s boom go for?
Comment, like, tweet, share our articles or even write your own article! All you need to do is register. Make your voice heard, have your rants published – this is what the website is all about.
Being the first year of our existence, we hope to see as many of you there at the range of events we have planned this year. Help us by showing support for our society, and we will try and deliver as much value as we can in the form of good times and intellectual rigour.
Stay posted to this website for regular articles, polls, discussions, news on employment opportunities and updates on the events we will be hosting this year.
We hope you can join us for a year of excitement as we venture on our journey into a new frontier.
