2018 ESA officers

The Department of Economics encourages students to grow and connect outside of the classroom. Get involved and create positive experiences and relationships to get the most of your time at “The Beach.”

Economics Student Association

Economics Student Association is an academic undergraduate student organization and an integral part of that community. Our goal is to bring the education students receive in the classroom and apply it outside. We do this by hosting resume workshops, guest speakers, and this year a trip to tour the Federal Reserve. Our executive board continues to manifest new ideas for the growth of its members professionally and academically.

Economics Mentorship Program

The Economics Mentorship Program (EMP) is an additional resource for undergraduate students who are seeking academic and professional assistance. Our mentors are graduate students who provide an informal opportunity for students to discuss career trajectories, resume building, and what to expect for graduate programs or whatever you may want to discuss about life. If you wish to seek mentoring, our CSULB Economics graduate students have experience in research, job interviews, internships, and programming languages that may be insightful for students as they advance in their time here at Long Beach. If you would like to set up an appointment with EMP, please send an email to CSULB EMP.
