Who We Are
The Economics and Finance Society (EFS) is the largest at UCL, providing students of all degree disciplines comprehensive exposure to the world of finance. From invaluable networking opportunities and career workshops, to landmark events and popular (now virtual!) socials - the EFS is dedicated to helping you make the most out of university.
We pride ourselves on being a truly diverse society; with members coming from a wide range of interests, degrees, backgrounds, and nationalities, whilst also maintaining a strong gender balance. Our 64-year backed professionalism has enabled us to build strong relationships between our sponsors and our members – both current students and alumni.
Each year our divisions regularly host a variety of events to cater to your every interest featuring keynote speakers, educational workshops, and famed socials. Our competitions and sponsored skills sessions make our members marketable to the largest firms in the industry, while our reputation attracts world leaders in Economics, Business, and Finance – from CEOs to Nobel Laureates – exposing our members to ground-breaking ideas across these fields.
I’d like to welcome you to The UCL Economics and Finance Society! Whether you are still at school, an incoming fresher, already at UCL, or a potential sponsor, as the largest and most prestigious society at UCL, we endeavour to inspire and educate you to achieve your career goals. We do this in an interactive and fun way; whether it is organising in-person events that connect you with professionals across our 8 divisions, hosting sponsored competitions with internship prizes, taking you on a trip abroad, or mentoring you with our renown mentorship programme, there really is something for everyone!
As the new academic year approaches us, one of my goals is to have as many events in-person as possible (so yes, this does mean a week away to Amsterdam) but also expose you to alternative corporate careers such as law and tech, in line with our changing world. We understand that times are still uncertain, so we are fully prepared for events to be hybrid for our international members who are not in London.
For our members, I look forward to meeting you at our 100+ planned blockbuster events such as the Inter University Finance Conference. For potential speakers and sponsors, I hope this website shows you the hard work that 67 years of committees produces, and that you see value in a collaboration with The UCL EFS to help us achieve our goal of inspiring and educating the next generation of leaders.
