What is ESO?

Economics Student Organization is a student group committed to help students discover their career goals and interests. We offer students multiple networking opportunities through our weekly company information session, social events and networking events.

Who We Are:

As a pre-professional student organization, we have been offering University of Minnesota students various career information and professional skills development advice. Through our events and connections within the university and professional world, ESO members have found careers in companies such as General Mills, IBM, Target and Wells Fargo.

Our Mission:

The mission of the Economics Student Organization is to help students discover their passions, to provide career and academic guidance, and to connect the economics student community at the University of Minnesota. In order to accomplish our mission, we provide three areas of support for students:

■ Insight: We present our members a wide array of speakers and guest presenters and offer them multiple internship and career opportunities from different organizations.

■ Resources: We provide our members with career and academic advice while helping members grow professionally and academically.

■ Community: We create a welcoming community for students to meet one another and discover common career and academic interests.
