The association was founded in November 2012 to be the representative professional career group for economics master's students at Texas A&M. Our goals include:

a) Equipping members with an amalgam of financial economic and econometric knowledge that spans a multitude of industries, including but not limited to mutual funds, hedge funnds, commercial and investment banking, forecasting, statistical analytics, and research through focused workshops and regular activities
b) Offering members first-hand looks at the economy and its working via field trips to financial institutions and guest speakers.
Establishing networking connections between members and employers, career associations within and outside of Texas A&M University, and the Aggie alumni
c) Enhancing the potential of our members through participation in fundraising projects, community service activities, and team-building exercises
d) Sponsoring social events for members to interact with and learn from one another outside a scholastic setting

The department of economics at Texas A&M University has a long tradition of excellence in the private, public, and academic spectrums, and the EACA hopes to continue that trend with our organization. A&M has successful alumni around the world willing to help and to guide aggies through the economics world, and this association aims to help members build relationships with them.

We at the EACA want to help you reap the rewards that markets offer. Come succeed and make a difference with us!
