Welcome Economics Alumni & Friends

Welcome to the alumni section of the Department of Economics website.  We take great pride in our alumni network of more than 13,000 living alumni whose accomplishments are increasingly awe-inspiring.  Our alumni are found around the world and in a multitude of diverse roles and leadership positions. 

The Alumni Relations & Outreach program is continually evaluating ways to add value to our alumni and student experiences as well as contribute to the field of economics in industry and academia and being good citizens of society.  We value your input and interaction to achieve those goals. 

We would love to hear from you, feature your work and updates, connect with you with other alumni, or draw on your expertise to enhance the student and other alumni experiences.  We hope you’ll reach out or connect with us in some way soon – read on to find out how.
