Omicron Delta Epsilon

Omicron Delta Epsilon is the international honor society for economics. It was established in 1963 as a result of the merger of Omicron Delta Gamma, founded in 1915, and Omicron Chi Epsilon, founded in 1955.

The objectives of Omicron Delta Epsilon are:

  •  the recognition of scholastic attainment and the honoring of outstanding achievements in economics;
  • the establishment of closer ties between students and faculty in economics within colleges and universities and among colleges and universities;
  • the publication of its official journal, The American Economist;
  • the sponsoring of panels at professional meetings as well as the Irving Fisher and Frank W. Taussig competitions.

 

For election into Omicron Delta Epsilon, undergraduate candidates must have completed 12 hours of economics course work with an average GPA of 3.0 or higher among these courses and must also maintain an overall average GPA of 3.0 or higher.
