About Us

We are the official student organization of the UCSD Economics Department for undergraduate students. With the support of Dr. Melissa Famulari, UES was founded in 2005 with the hopes of establishing a stronger network among all undergraduate economics students by using resources and connecting faculty from the Economics Department. Since its founding, UES has been expanding and evolving to new heights. We now provide the resources necessary to prepare our members for embarking on a career in the business world or graduate school through various events and workshops. Students have the opportunity to network with alumni, corporate representatives, graduate students, UCSD faculty, and each other while being a part of an organization designed to enhance the educational and social experience of all interested students at UCSD!
Please surf through our website to learn more about us and we are very excited to meet all of you very soon!


We usually host about 3~4 events per quarter. We organize events to help students develop a professional resume and networking/interview skills. Some of our annual events include the Student Business Panel, the Undergraduate/Graduate Student Mixer, and the Student Faculty Mixer. Every year, we are committed to better serve our students by improving on our annual events or hosting new types of events. If you have any suggestions on the events you want to see from us, please fill out this survey and we will tailor our future events to your needs. Additionally, please visit our events page in order to see what's next from UES!
