Welcome to our official website.
We are an international forum for the world's brightest students and most influential speakers.
Every year we welcome students from universities across the world and speakers from Europe, Asia, Africa and America.
Who are we?
The Warwick Economics Summit is an entirely student-run international forum where talented university students listen to some of the world’s most revered and inspirational speakers.
The next edition will run from 10th of February - 12th February 2023.
What do we do?
The summit’s focus goes far beyond the field of economics, encompassing the broader spheres of the social sciences, including development, politics, journalism, and international relations.
It is this wide scope and diversity that sets the Summit apart from other events, ensuring that it remains relevant and in tune with today’s wider issues.
