WES 2016 Sponsors and Partners
Posted on the 4th February 2016 by Sumeeta, Communications Coordinator
Without sponsors, the Warwick Economics Summit would not be possible. We are proud to work in partnership with them – and we are hugely grateful for their support. The Summit would offer delegates the chance to meet their representatives and to network: the perfect opportunity to learn more about summer internships, graduate opportunities and what it's like to be involved.
Warwick Economics Department
