Our Masthead

The Columbia Economics Review Executive Board is selected each spring from a pool of dedicated journal team members through a rigorous application and interview process. The board meets weekly during the semester, and is responsible for making decisions about the direction of the journal as well as organizing events and competitons and maintaining and expanding our online presence. Each fall, we accept applications for new additions to our publishing, online, and operations teams from both new and current members.
