SEIC Community - Tap into our seniors and alumni who can guide you on any questions you have advise you might be seeking. 

Research Analyst Program

SEIC's Research Analyst Program (R.A.P.) is a highly selective research program.

As a member of this program, you get the opportunity to write and publish at least 3 papers on self selected topics, be mentored by seniors, get access to career opportunities with international think tanks and attend workshops for skills development.

SEIC is the ideal opportunity for undergraduates looking to pursue research outside the classroom. Members get in-depth experience with the process of economic research and learn about crucial global issues.

Most importantly, being a part of RAP connects you with a friendly community of fellow students who are passionate about this subject, providing each other with invaluable academic and career advice.

Illustrator Program

SEIC's Illustrator Program (R.A.P.) goes hand-in-hand with the Research Analyst Program.

 

Selected illustrators get the opportunity to design intelligent illustrations based on research articles.

This gives students an outlet to connect economic thinking with creative skills development. All illustrations are published on the website.

SEIC’s Research Analyst program had driven me towards pursuing my passion towards studying in the field of economics, through reading global economic current affairs, interpreting trends and graphs, and intellectually challenging me in applying economic theories learned in SMU modules in inferring, analyzing and suggesting potential recommendations and solutions.
