NOTE  In place of the unofficial associate membership in the Rutgers chapter of ODE, we are creating a new organization, the Rutgers Economics Society (RES), with much of the same benefits, activities and rewards as associate membership in ODE, but without the potential conflict with the national ODE.  Former associate ODE members will become full members of RES.

The Rutgers Economics Society (RES) was established in 2015 to provide an enhanced opportunity for students of all majors interested in economics, to expand their interest, knowledge, skills, and career planning while interacting with each other, faculty, alumni and distinguished outside speakers.  There are no requirements for membership beyond being a student at Rutgers in Piscataway/New Brunswick and an interest in economics and economic issues, and a desire to develop greater understanding, skills and networks. Membership in RES will replace the unofficial associate membership in ODE, the International Economics Honor Society. RES members will be able to apply for full ODE membership once they meet the requirements (see the Rutgers ODE web site for more information https://econweb.rutgers.edu/sheflin/ode.html). Full members in ODE will automatically have membership status in RES.

Welcome to the 2015-16 Academic Year.  coming up: roundtables with faculty, employers, former students and more, forecasting competition, Bloomberg terminal workshop, Excel, SAS, Statistical Package workshops, Voices of Experience Evening and more. Keep checking this web site and make

Activities. RES sponsors a series of informal brown bag luncheon roundtables with faculty, focused on economic policy issues. In the past these have included discussions of alleged discrimination in professional sports, the justification for public support of higher education, the economics of crime, etc. In mid to late fall, there is a new-member induction. ODE also sponsors an annual macroeconomic forecasting competition Each year, there is a Voices of Experience evening in which alumni return and discuss their experiences, provide advice, and discuss career issues with ODE members. There are also periodic skills and career sessions. Outings to the Fed, the New York Stock Exchange and other relevant destinations have been organized in the past..
