ODE is the international honor society in economics. Each spring we induct the top students in the program into ODE. Minimum requirements include a 3.0 overall GPA, a 3.0 GPA in all economics courses, and at least 12 semester hours of completed economics coursework. ODE graduates are honored with copper honor cords to wear at the graduation ceremony. (Copper is the color that
represents the economics discipline.)
ODE is one of the largest academic honor societies. Members include Nobel laureates
and other famous economists. The objectives of ODE are:
- To confer distinction for high scholastic achievement in economics.
- To stimulate and promote student interests in all aspects of economics.
- To publish an official journal to be entitled The American Economist.
- To sponsor the Fisher-Taussig Award Competitions.
