EGSA Members
Core Objectives
  1. Achieve and sustain excellence in graduate scholarship,
  2. Foster a sense of community among graduate students and faculty.

How we achieve these objectives:

  • Organize mock-presentations for graduate students to present their research works prior to conferences or thesis defense,
  • Sponsor training sessions on the use of statistical software packages such as SAS, STATA and EndNote,
  • Connect with alumni in PhD programs and career services,
  • Organize debates on current economic issues,
  • Organize social events that strengthen the relationship between faculty and graduate students, e.g. “coffee happy hour.”

Membership
