Message from the President

Welcome to the Durham University Economics Society (DUES), a ratified society with the Durham Student Union and officially acknowledged by Durham University Business School. Founded in 2011 with the intention of bringing together students interested in economics and further stimulating them by attracting speakers and events to Durham.


We want to grow further and continue to facilitate the engagement of students, socially and academically. We hope the society will provide a network for students interested in economics and stimulate discussion and debate outside of the university course. We will be hosting regular talks from guest speakers, an economics ball, networking events and much more.


The Executive Committee looks forward to offering members an engaging and valuable experience over the coming year. 


I look forward to meeting you at our events and hope you have a great year,



Yousuf Mirza


DUES President 2020/21

Our Aims

1. To Stimulate Debate


By attracting renowned speakers and hosting networking and social events, the Society wants to initiate discussions in Economics and become a forum for academic debate.

2. To Promote Articles


Through the publication of the Economics Journal, both online and in hard copy, talented writers will have the opportunity to have their work read and discussed throughout the university and beyond. 

3. To Encourage Diversity


By holding various social events throughout the year, the Society hopes to bring together a diverse group of students from outside and within the discipline, of all year groups and from all colleges, who have a common interest in Economics.
