Student and Professional Organizations
Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE) is the international economics honor society. The Department of Economics at Boise State University established the Beta Chapter of ODE in Idaho in 1976. ODE’s mission is to encourage excellence in economics. Membership in ODE confers recognition of scholarly achievement in economics. Candidates for election to ODE do not have to major in economics, but they must be seriously interested in economics demonstrated by successful completion of a minimum 12 credits in economics. Learn more about ODE on their website.
The Economics Association connects students interested in economics, regardless of their major, in settings outside of the classroom. The group hosts monthly presentations, Pizzanomics, that bring students into contact with professors and outside speakers for food and discussion in an informal setting. The Economics Association also annually hosts speakers from other universities at public lectures. The Economics Association is open to anyone interested in economics.
American Economics Association
The American Economics Association (AEA) is a professional organization that promotes the interests of the economics community and is a good source for networking. Learn more about the American Economics Association or click here to join the AEA.
