Our History

The Global Association of Economics Education (GAEE International) was founded in 2017 by Le Dong Hai “DoHa” Nguyen FRSA to promote economics education and financial literacy among students in developing countries and marginalized communities. Recognized as a 501c3 public charity by the United States Department of the Treasury, an NGO and SDG Action Program by the United Nations, and a student member of the World Economics Association, GAEE has grown to become a leading force in the global movement for economics education reform and democratization. Learn more about GAEE International here.

With a drive for growth and a common aim of democratizing economics education, GAEE India (formerly GAEE North India) was founded in August 2020 as the first Indian chapter of GAEE International. 

GAEE India has collaborated with various imminent organisations and personalities to conduct numerous training workshops, sessions, quizzes and enriching discussions pertaining to economics, finance, entrepreneurship, consulting and policy issues. We look forward to the continuous growth of GAEE India in the years to come. 

Our Vision

Through the medium of our sessions and discussions, we aim to create an inclusive space for college students to come forth and bridge the gap between economics education and its application. The organization strives to engage students in high-quality workshops and events with the goal of educating its members about the fundamentals of economic theory in practice, personal finance and entrepreneurial skills. We envision opening the gates to this learning group for students throughout India from all backgrounds and majors to further bust the belief that these fields are accessible only to a certain pool of people.
