Economics Society

Who we are

Welcome to the Stirling University Economics Society.


Our Mission: 

Here at the Economics Society we seek to conduct economic forecasting and research with the purpose of providing the knowledge Asset Management firms or Government agenices need to make investment decisions and determine economic policy. At the Economics Society we will partnering up throughout the academic year with the Student Managed Investment Fund to enable us to apply our economic analysis to a practical environment by providing our insights into the macro and microeconomic trends that may affect their investment portfolio. 

One of the projects we are currently working on is an electricity demand forecasting model until 2035 in the state of Florida to ascertain its effects on the electric utility company NextEra Energy and how it would change its fundamental valuation as an investment. If this type of research sounds interesting to you we are planning on doing a lot more so feel free to join the society, we would love for you to come, no matter what degree you are studying there is something for you to learn and contribute towards!
