  • Tutoring Programs & Study Groups

  • Resume & Interview Workshops
  • Career Trips to Chicago and New York
  • Member socials, and many other great events!

These services are designed to introduce a variety of industries to members as they prepare for a career after graduation. Previous events have included prominent speakers such as Jeff Ticknor- Head of the Diversified Industries Group at BMO Harris, Dr. Leslie Petty- Assistant Dean of the Evening & Executive MBA Programs at UW-Madison, and many others.

Combined with these events, ESA and the Economics Department hold resume and interview workshops throughout the semester. Where students can receive guidance from upperclassmen and faculty members as they begin apply for summer internships and full-time positions following graduation.

A large campus like UW-Madison can be overwhelming at times, with hundreds of employment and social opportunities, it can be easy to miss out on valuable experiences. With over 150 members, membership in ESA will allow you to make lifelong friends within a community of motivated students.
