Navya Dikshit
I have had the opportunity to attend the excellent events delivered by UCL EFS and the previous VP of Economics. It would be wonderful to build on these events in collaboration with the society and host more inspiring talks. I have organised events for several societies by collaborating with committee members and prominent speakers including policy makers in the British government and other prestigious firms across a range of fields. I would love to take on board any ideas and opinions and aim to deliver more inspiring discussions.
If elected I would aim to:
1. Diversify the events more by reaching out to people from different fields. Lots of students who join EFS don't major in economics and I recognize how important it is to expose people to potential careers in different areas. I hope to do this by inviting policy makers, researchers, bankers who work and specialise in different areas (eg: environmental/ health/ education/business economics) thus fostering a more diverse community overall.
2. Organise more events based on current industry trends which would help increase commercial awareness and provide an understanding of current events in a more applied setting. It would also give students the opportunity to talk about and discuss the content of these talks in their respective interviews.
3. Increase social interaction by organizing more informal debates, discussions, quizzes and games for students following the events.

Hi everyone,

My name is Maksymilian Mucha and I am Economics student at UCL. Having been truly passionate about economics since my secondary school, I am running for the 2021/22 Vice-President of Economics at Economics and Finance Society. My relevant experience include:
- Incoming Spring Intern at BNP Paribas in Global Markets Division
- Analysts and Marketing Executive at UCL M&A Group
- Consultant at London Strategic Consulting
- Finance & Partnership Officer at UCL Leaders 2021 conference
- Silver Medalist at International Economics Olympiad in 2019 and 2020

As the Vice-President of Economics at EFS, I would like to:
- Organise essay writing competition for students reading economic-related courses and students reading other degrees
- Hold talks with most important economists – both working in public and private sector
- Conduct revision workshops before the 2022 exam session
- Start a mentorship programme for students aiming to pursue PhD degree
- Establish partnerships with firms and sponsors

It would be a great honour to become EFS Vice-President of Economics. I am eager to continue the marvellous project begun by my predecessors and I am looking forward to contributing to the further expansion of our society.

Hi, I am Eshaa, a first-year Economics and Statistics undergraduate. As an EFS Marketing Executive, I worked closely with the present committee and the EFS economics division to promote various events, from logistics for the IB Careers Fair to the upcoming interview with Andrew Sheng, giving me an insight into the workings of the society. If elected, I want to make economics fun for everyone, exploring its multifaceted nature by:

1. Devising a research scheme to record monthly thought-provoking podcasts on the implications of data being the new oil and ‘repugnant transactions’ to name a few.
2. Exploring niche topics within the field such as economics of poker, application of game theory in everyday life, the impact of ‘black swan’ events and other behavioural economic themes.
3. Facilitating new partnerships with global universities and economic think tanks such as the Institute for New Economic Thinking while building on the existing EFS network.
4. Inviting economists at global banks and consultancies to help members make informed career choices.

As the co-founder of a tech-education start-up and president of my school’s business society, I have profound leadership skills. Furthermore, having successfully secured spring weeks at Deutsche Bank and Barclays – I am passionate to help students succeed in their careers. Most importantly, I pride myself on being approachable and hope to make your experience with EFS as fun, memorable and inclusive as it was for me!
