The Graduate students' council at the Department of Economics, Stockholm University, is the official channel of communication between the graduate students (including students at IIES and SOFI) and the department.

But most of all, it is a forum for discussion among the graduate students. The GSC aims at solving the collective action problem including working for improving courses’ quality, information flows between cohorts of students as well as building networks and contacts in the labor market for PhDs.

If you have any questions, ideas or opinions concerning the program: do not hesitate to share those with someone on the board.
