The Economics Honor Society (EHS) is a chapter of the international honor society in the field of economics called Omicron Delta Epsilon, and was launched in Spring 2017. Our guiding mission is "Honoring achievement in economics worldwide," and this chapter focuses on edifying the student body through understanding economic foundations and having critical discussions on the global economy and its effects on an integrated world.
As a social science, the study of economics touches virtually every field, and thus this society aims to cultivate a unified network of students across all majors with similar interests to grow beyond the classroom. EHS seeks out those who wish to prepare themselves as professionals, analytical thinkers, and well-informed members of tomorrow's workforce. In depth examination of current events, opportunities to speak with industry professionals, and being able to learn from and grow with like minded students are just a few aspects of this society. Other topics of discussion, such as the automatization of the New York Stock Exchange and the future trend interest rates set forth by the Federal Reserve will take in the coming economic climate, will be touched upon as well as being possible group destinations to visit.
The Economics Honor Society aims to bring together and build an informed group of students to face the challenging questions of todays economic world and experience reality beyond a classroom through events and undergraduate research, all the while providing the positive externality of creating a network of classmates who better themselves and those around them.
General assembly meetings will be on the last Wednesdays of the month from 4:00 - 5:00 pm in SBUS 215
