Connecting students with mentors The Economics Society is proud to launch the undergraduate mentorship initiative. This program allows first and second year students interested in majoring in economics to connect with upper year student mentors. These mentors – each with their unique experiences in undergraduate – will be able to help answer questions about the program, co-op, student life, and more. If you are a first and second year student who is still undeclared or is interested in studying economics, you will be eligible to apply for a mentorship placement.
Meet some of our mentors!
“I’m an international student from Mauritius and currently in 3B Economics. My co-op experience involves working for the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) as a Junior project analyst, and working as an Advisor at the Ontario Investment Office for the Ministry of Economic Development. I’m interested about technology (IoT and AI) and how they can disrupt traditional businesses and impact developing countries.”

“I am a 5th year econ coop student and I have had work placements in the private and public sector. My interests are mostly policy related and some of the work I have done on my co-op terms include developing policies for the preservation and optimization of cultural assets as well as researching and collecting data on private properties for rehabilitation. Most of my favourite Econ classes have been microeconomic related but I have a particular passion for environmental economics and the history of economic thought. In my spare time I love to play ukulele and paint still life. I sometimes picture myself in an alternate universe as an artist instead of an economist but am quite happy discussing anything related to economics in the meantime.”
