Association of Graduate Economics Students


AGES is the Association of Graduate Economics Students at Columbia University, of which all economics graduate students are members. It serves two purposes:

  • The representation of the interests of students at both the departmental and graduate school level.  We provide guidance to prospective students who attend our Open House in the spring in small group meetings.  We mentor new students throughout their 1st year.
  • The organization of various social activities for its members.  Our two largest events are the welcome barbeque in the fall and our famous Skit Night in the spring. 

Every Columbia Economics graduate student is a member of AGES. AGES members elect representatives who are responsible for the day-to-day management of the Association. The Association has no political or other affiliation whatsoever.
