About EOTY

Economist of the Year (EOTY) is the annual flagship event of SSE and has a demonstrable record of success. EOTY is an educational event that caters to broadening students' understanding of Economics in the real world. A set of competitive events were lined up to judge participants on knowledge and awareness, negotiation skills, debating, and public speaking, essential characteristics of an Economist. It has made an impressive reputation among all the illustrious institutions around India, offering cash prizes, gift vouchers, and certificates in store for the participants who make it to the end.

In the 5th edition of EOTY, we aimed to bring students together from around the globe to a unique platform to showcase their abilities in the three exhilarating rounds of the event, following the theme ‘A WORLD RENEWED’. The event was judged and graced by a panel of eminent academicians from the field of Economics. This year with over 530 participants, 1000 registrations and all of SSE being asked to participate it was the biggest in terms of size of participants. This year EOTY was open to everyone in the world, we managed to get about a dozen registrations from abroad. The competition consisted of four events, where a participant had to use not only their academic intellect but also form solutions using their problem solving ability. The competition is composed of several rounds, each testing wit, teamwork, and cognizance of students and culminates in the Grand Finale, The Panel Discussion, where students become panelists and discuss pertinent socio-economic issues of present times. The victor of this panel discussion is awarded the title of "Economist of The Year". All competitions are judged by an esteemed panel of judges who are stalwarts in their field. Economist of the Year perceives a continuous growth in passion and participation from students all across the country. This year, it gets bigger, better and international!

We at Symbiosis School of Economics strive for excellence and perfection. Our hope is to make this event an attractive opportunity, thus efficiently utilizing your time and resources. Through your resources and our platform, we together will be able to reap the potential of Economist of the Year and make it the grand success that we all envision it to be.
