Brandeis International Business School

National Association of Business Economics (NABE)

NABE members


The Brandeis NABE Chapter is a student chapter of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE). NABE is the premier professional association for business economists and other who use economics in the workplace. The club is intended for students who are interested in a career in economics or finance, as a macroeconomic vision is integral for both. Since its formation in January 2012, the chapter has organized numerous networking events with top-tier business professionals and academics held in Washington DC, New York City, San Francisco, and here in Boston. In February 2013, the group held the first Crisis Game event, an inter-school competition that challenges students' knowledge of economics, finance and market regulation. The event provides excellent networking opportunities and prizes in the form of internships.

The mission of the Brandeis IBS NABE Chapter is to align students' interest in the field of business economics with useful resources to help them prepare for a strong career.

Key events and activities connected to Brandeis NABE include:

  • NABE Annual Convention
  • International Summit for Careers in Economics
