King's EconoMathSociety

Mission Statement

KEMS is a society made up of members passionate about Economics, Mathematics, and learning. It was established in April, 2015 and officially ratified by the King’s University College Students’ Council in September, 2015 (kucsc.ca). We are sincerely devoted to helping our members succeed in their academic endeavors and giving them the opportunity to extend their classroom learning to real world applications.

What We Do

Networking

Networking opportunities are available at all KEMS events and include professional events, such as the annual Speaker Convention, and social events like the September Social and Karaoke Night.

Academics

We provide extensive support for all first year mathematics and economic courses, as well as most upper year economic courses. These include mock exams, study review sessions, free tutoring, and tutorial sessions.

Enrichement Program

The KEMS Enrichment Program (KEP) is designed to provide workshops, lecture series, case competitions, and other career or graduate school-related resources. It will also soon introduce an Internship Program.

  • Membership Cards

    As with most clubs, KEMS has a membership fee of $5.00 that can be paid upon joining. By paying this fee, you will receive a Membership Card with your name, KEMS ID #, and its expiry date.

    This card will allow you to receive free tutoring services and have access to free academic resources and events for the year. A KEMS ID # also allows volunteer hours, meeting and event attendance to be recorded to establish recipients of the KEMS Certificate of Excellence Award and other additional prizes.

  • → KEMS Publishing Team

    A branch of KEMS, the Publishing Team acts as one entity to organize, edit, and publish the EBM Insider as well as other promotional material. Currently, the team consists of two co-editors, seven writers, and two photographers. We are always looking to expand and have opportunities for both domestic and international students.

    Our main goal through the publishing team is to encourage independent thought and develop research skills related to the fields of business, economics, and mathematics. We work closely with the EBM Department in ensuring the content is relevant and designed in a high-quality fashion.

    The Bitcoin workshop was the largest event provided through the Enrichment Program. It outlined the economic significance of crypto currencies, specifically Bitcoin.

    Mock Exams

    Mock exams are open to both members and non-members and provide a unique opportunity to better-prepare for finals while receiving support from fellow peers, faculty, and upper-year students.

    KEMS Ceremony

    At the end of each year, KEMS hosts a ceremony to award all outstanding contributions made by its members and acts as a final social gathering before summer break.

  • Speaker Convention

    KEMS aims to provide at least one large networking and informational event. During the 2015-16 academic year, the society organized and hosted its first annual speaker convention highlighting the theme of where an economics, business, and/or mathematics degree might take you as a career.

    Network & Chill

    A night of games, food, and socializing as a way to relax and enjoy a stress-free evening before finals begin.
