The Graduate Economics Association (GEA) of Boston University assists students in the graduate programs in economics (PhD, MA, MAEP, MAGDE) and provides peer resources on a variety of topics. The GEA also hosts a series of events during the year, aimed at bringing together students and professors in an informal setting, such as pub nights and move nights. Additionally, the GEA puts on the annual Rosenthal Memorial Lecture, choosing a notable speaker to give a guest lecture at the University.
