Overview of Economics Club
The Bard Economics Club is a student-run organization that will supplement the economics program at Bard. Our goals are to enhance the undergraduate economics experience with speakers from various fields within economics such as finance, economic policy, and academia. We also want to raise money so that we can attend major economic conferences such as the Hyman Minsky Conference in Washington, D.C., amongst other talks and conferences in the NYC area. We also aim to help students develop networking skills, and organize networking events with students through Bard alumni working in economics-related fields. The CDO is also willing to work with us on building essential career-oriented skills such as resume-buildling, utilizing LinkedIn, interviews, etc. Besides all of these great opportunities, we also want to create an environment where economics majors can just talk about current events, their economics homework, their weekend, the stock market, cereal, their hedgehog and whatever else.
