Economics societies

Being a part of a society will enrich your student experience, enhance your career prospects and help you to create a lively social network with other students.

Our BA Econ Society is the largest course society at The University of Manchester and offers plenty of opportunities to join in with activities and events during your time studying at the School of Social Sciences.

Get involved in this, or another course-specific society and gain new experiences, skills and friends.

Being the Social Secretary for the Politics, Philosophy and Economics Society was fun - there’s no better feeling than arranging an event and watching it pass off successfully after weeks of preparations.

Being part of the BSc Economics Society has made me realise how important an early focus on career is. The socials and networking events offered me a powerful advantage in terms of academic and professional development.
