Pareto Uppsala

”Pareto Uppsala Economic Association”, commonly referred to as Pareto, is a non-profit student organisation formed in the fall of 2010. Pareto’s purpose is to promote and increase student interest in various topics of economics. A diversity of scholarly views and interdisciplinary perspectives is encouraged in our activities and operations. An additional aim of the organisation is to spread knowledge and stimulate debate about economic issues outside of Pareto’s member circle.

Pareto organises lectures, debates, seminars, workshops and other similar activities to achieve its goals, often in cooperation with potential employers such as Copenhagen Economics or Oxford Research. Additionally Pareto offers social events like pub nights, quizzes, Christmas parties and more.

Another strand of the organisation's work is concerned with educational quality. The idea to form a committee working with educational issues developed during the fall term of 2011 when several Master’s students began discussing issues of educational quality and study structure. Pareto’s educational committee was then founded with the aim of improving the economics education at Uppsala University in terms of both organisation and quality. To achieve this goal, the committee cooperates intensively with the department of economics.
