SUE Newsletter: February Edition

Winter 2022 Industry Night

This year's Industry Night is on February 18, 2022, starting at 6:30 pm. Industry Night is a networking event where you listen to a keynote speaker, meet professionals and get to know fellow SUE members. This night is your time to learn more about the opportunities that await you during your university career and beyond graduation. This time around, SUE decided to centre this Industry Night on a single theme: Purpose. How registration will work this time around is by simply signing up, and once we hear back from our professionals, another Google Form will be sent out to those who sign-up as well as the schedule.

UofT Mississauga Department of Economics Brain Drain Case Competition

The University of Toronto Mississauga Department of Economics is launching a nationwide case conference on the topic of "Brain Drain" for their Annual Case Competition this year. The case competition aims to inspire students to investigate the impacts of brain drain on both the host and origin country; leveraging critical analysis skills to try and determine causal effects. Students will draw up potential policies that attenuate the economic effects of brain drain where each team would put themselves in the shoes of policymakers - how can each country capitalize from the natural movement of high-skilled workers? How would the government balance the potential rift between existing workers and new workers? This competition will be divided into three separate stages with individual submission dates on March 4th and 17th. Then the finale will take place on March 18th. In addition, UofT has prepared monetary prizes for first, second, and third place at $1500, $700, and $350 respectively. Whether or not you have a team of 3-5 people, you are still able to sign-up as a solo participant or with a partner. Just keep in mind you will not be able to choose the pair of countries you would like to research for this case competition. The deadline to register is Thursday, February 24th, so register as soon as possible! Registration link here:
