About us

As the largest academic society at the LSE, with over 800 members, we are the primary social and educational hub for both undergraduate and graduate students across a wide variety of disciplines. We are also the only society officially supported by the world-leading LSE Economics Department, allowing us unparalleled resources to support and inspire our students.

For many LSE students, the Economics Society is one of the first societies they join. Many students attend our weekly speaker series, Sen Club, engaging with renowned economists on a weekly basis. Last year, our list of speakers included Nobel Prize winners Amartya Sen and Esther Duflo. Students can also produce and publish original research in our prestigious Research Division, attend our flagship Economics Conference, compete in our Policy Competition, produce our Podcast and join various socials.

If you would like more information about how to get involved in the Economics Society, or have any other questions, please get in touch through FB or email us at economics@lsesu.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
