We are a 501(c)(3) NGO founded and led by students to promote economics education, personal finance, and entrepreneurship incubation for our peers in marginalized communities and underserved school systems across ten countries. With a love for economics, we are bonded by a desire to democratize access to this exciting subject—making it available for everyone, not just for those pursuing economic priesthood.
“Two-thirds of the world’s population doesn’t have access to economics education. That’s why we founded GAEE. Knowing what opportunity cost is about and how to read your balance sheet—we want every student finishing high school or college to be capable of that.”
DoHa Nguyen, GAEE’s Founder & Executive Director
Behind the Wheel
GAEE is entirely led by young people—high school, undergraduate, graduate students, and aspiring economists. Our network of 1500+ changemakers across ten countries are working tirelessly to make economics education accessible to everyone.
Much of our strength as a student-led movement is derived from our passionate network of 1500+ members. Our chapter leaders are the backbone of this tight-knit network that spans across Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, and Oceania.

Bridging the gap between theory and real-world is indeed a skill that would be highly sought after in the post-pandemic world—and GAEE managed to do so with a very interactive and personalized approach. In addition to over thirty colleges from across the country, the National Council of Educational Research and Training has expressed interest in joining GAEE.
