Economics MA and PhD Alumni
Interested graduates of the Master of Arts in Economics program at the University of Toronto formed a partnership with the Department of Economics to support student and alumni engagement, and to enable alumni to stay connected to the department through various activities. Specific goals identified are to:
- provide a means for alumni to connect with each other and to share pride in the U of T economics department;
- share news from/about alumni everywhere and encourage/facilitate alumni and current MA and PhD student interaction;
- reach out to economics alumni at other institutions, associations and in industry to invite them as mentors, to speak at or to sponsor events;
- understand the priorities of the department and the needs of current students, and liaise with supportive and influential alumni to promote the best interests of the economics discipline within U of T, in Canada, and globally.
Additionally the Economics GEU representatives and interested PhD students and alumni have also become actively involved in planning, supporting and participating in programs and events in partnership with the Department of Economics.
A core communication challenge we face on an ongoing basis is that alumni rarely retain their U of T email address (or set up a U of T alumni email address) once they convocate and relocate as they move to next steps in their career or higher post-secondary education. The result is that we quickly lose contact. We therefore invite and encourage all MA and PhD graduates to update their contact information to stay connected!
Events | Workshops | Programs
Members of the department, GEU, and alumni partner to host several programs (e.g., orientation, social) and workshops (e.g. career, job placement, networking, mock interviews). If you are a University of Toronto economics MA or PhD alumni or student, and would like to participate in events to connect and network with other students and alumni, please contact us using the subject heading “Economics Alumni Events” to be added to the notification list. We look forward to hearing from you.
