About the OECD:
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is a global economic forum working with 36 member countries and more than 100 emerging and developing economies. The mission of the OECD is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world – “Better Policies for Better Lives”.
The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. It works with governments to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change. The Organisation analyses and compares data to predict future trends and sets international standards on a wide range of things, from education to tax to the safety of chemicals. Drawing on facts and real-life experience, the OECD recommends policies designed to make the lives of ordinary people better. The common thread of the OECD work is a shared commitment to market economies backed by democratic institutions and focused on the well-being of all citizens. More information on the OECD could be found on www.oecd.org, LinkedIn, Facebook & Instagram
Students interested in exploring employment opportunities at the OECD, and hearing about OECD positions and programmes, including the Internship Programme, the Young Associates Programme (for undergraduates) and the Young Professionals Programme, are welcome to attend these events.
Please bring your own lunch.
