Launch of Ambassador Scheme 2016

Posted on the 7th September 2015 by Aakanksha, Communications Coordinator


Warwick Economics Summit is excited to announce the launch of our 2016 Ambassador Scheme, our landmark venture aimed at recruiting students from universities across the world to promote the Summit and to inspire students to join the event in February.

Organised by students and for students, WES is one of the largest academic conferences of its kind in Europe, in years past attracting over 400 students yearly from 17 countries and over 50 universities worldwide. The 2016 conference will be held from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th of February 2016, at the University of Warwick, ranked as having the best Economics Department in the UK. The event includes talks from numerous prestigious speakers, with past speakers including Nobel Laureate's George Akerlof & John Nash, prominent policy makers such as Alistair Darling and Supachai Panitchpakdi and best selling author Stephen Landsburg. It also offers thought provoking seminars, a welcome reception for international students and the always anticipated Summit Ball.

Each year WES sets up an engaging and rewarding scheme called the WES Ambassador Scheme, aimed at recruiting motivated students from all across the world. We believe these students would thrive from further cooperation with our marketing team as they encourage and inspire friends and other students from universities over the world to attend the event. So far the scheme has been a success, and a huge thanks goes to all of the ambassadors who have worked hard over the years to bring in delegations from all over the world!

Endorsed by David Cameron himself, our Summit provides a unique opportunity for bright and talented students to come together and hear from world-renowned experts, on a platform allowing them to exchange ideas and challenge their views on highly relevant topics. As a result, cultivating and expanding an international network of delegates and ambassadors is crucial to us, as we believe in making cutting-edge economic research and evolving new ideology more readily available to whoever wishes to attend, all with the goal of fostering an intellectual community of passionate students.

Therefore we would like to offer you the opportunity to join our global team this year. Further details about the scheme are provided below.
