Wisconsin Economics Young Alumni Network
WEYAN is an initiative launched by the Wisconsin Economics Young Alumni Council (WEYAC), the first department-level young alumni advisory council at UW–Madison. Previously known as Economics Student Association Advisory Council, the group was formed eight years ago by then-Department Chair and now College of Letters & Science Dean Karl Scholz. WEYAC’s mission is to improve the undergraduate economics experience at UW–Madison by partnering with the Economics Student Association (ESA) and the Department of Economics through various student-led, alumni-supported programming.
These activities include mentoring students on career development, sharing career and life after Wisconsin Economics through the WEYAC blog, and much more. Members can also connect with students and other alumni during summer internships across the country, or host students on career networking trips. WEYAN is the perfect platform to mentor a Badger, partake in a summer social, share your professional experiences, host and hire UW econ students, or give back to the department financially.
