The LSE SU Economics Society is one of the largest and most influential student societies at LSE, with just under 1000 members, representing nearly every background, degree and year of study. We are the only society at LSE which is officially supported by the LSE’s Economics Department, consistently rated as one of the best economics departments in the world, and last year we held over 40 events for our members.
Economics at university, especially for new students, can often seem too distant from the real world, with its focus on abstract models and mathematics. In essence, our job is to bring the real world back to students of Economics at LSE, and to cultivate a love of the subject that goes beyond simply scoring well in exams. We do this in several ways, all of which have separate sections on this website in case you would like to find out more:
In addition, we have some new initiatives which we are hoping to try out next academic year, so keep your eye on the website for when we formally announce them!
On behalf of the entire committee, I would like to thank you for visiting our website, and I hope you’ll be able to get involved in our society. Please don’t hesitate to visit the ‘contact us’ section if the website if you have any questions
