Ateneo Economics Association

To members of the Ateneo Economics Association (AEA), the application of economics to everyday situations is the mantra; the spread of economic literacy, the aim. As one of the oldest organizations in a university that preaches magis and being persons-for-others, AEA also envisions economists that go beyond classroom discussion of economic theories. Constantly guided by Ignatian principles for the past five decades, its members strive to give back to the community through various development projects. The organization aims to empower members through activities that use economic discourse in contextualizing pertinent issues of Philippine society. This, while still upholding a tradition of excellence by continuing established projects such as the Youth Economic Summit (YES), Valentines in August (VIA), and Oikonomos. At the present, the organization's goal is to promote economic consciousness with the university’s thrusts of Nation, Creation and Identity as its guiding principles.
