Of students, By students, For students.

Started as a small group of passionate economics students who wanted to educate their peers on this amazing subject, GAEE has grown to become a global organization providing students in developing countries and marginalized communities with world-class learning and development opportunities through the platform of economics literacy.

GAEE is officially recognized as the SDG Action No. 36897 by the United Nations.

World-class Learning Materials

GAEE develops our innovative curriculum based on the Rice University OpenStax, HSFPP, CEE’s K12, CORE, RE, and Financial Times SSI and tailored it to the local needs of our chapters with an emphasis on real-life application and a heterodox approach.

Multiple Leadership Opportunities

Whether you are an aspiring economist, a political science student, or a software developer, our tight-knit network across ten countries always offers you the opportunity to apply your talent into our student-led movement!

Mix & Match! Be experimental

From direct learning through our chapter network and distant learning through webinars and our mobile app to Training-of-Trainer workshops, academic conferences, and essay competitions, there’s always something for you at GAEE.

Active and Fast-Growing Network

Since 2017, GAEE has turned into a global nonprofit with 1500+ across 10 countries. We expect to reach 5000+ students in 18 countries by 2021 with our ambitious GAEE’s Silk Road Plan and the UN-recognized #GAEEforAsia campaign.
