The Economics Department’s Graduate Student Association (GSA) is a non-profit, student-run organization established for the benefit of all economics graduate students at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University. All officially-enrolled economics graduate students are automatically members of the GSA, and the GSA levies no dues. The GSA promotes scholarship, develops a spirit of cooperation and fellowship among economics graduate students, and fosters interaction between graduate students and faculty.

What do we do?
The GSA organizes networking events, study sessions, and a variety of social events. GSA also assists with funding for conference travel. Each year is tailored to the needs and requests of the students. In the past years, we have:

Participated in BOOF literacy training for youth with other AYS organizations
Led group outings to movies, professional mixers, and conferences
Hosted training sessions for EndNote, LaTex, giving a presentation, and more
Spearheaded AYSPS-wide events such as Coffees with the Dean and the Annual Picnic
Organized review sessions for comprehensive exams and job market packets
Taken day trips to Tybee Island, Cataloochie ski resort, and more
