Great American cities have prestigious forums for intellectually motivating and deeply relevant economic discussion. The Economic Club of Utah serves this purpose for the State of Utah. An initiative of the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah, the club is a forum to share research, data and analysis important to the success of the Utah economy. Like the economic clubs of Chicago, New York and Washington D.C., the Economic Club of Utah brings together leading economists and business leaders and aims to cultivate the next generation of economic and civic leadership. The club serves the entire state, replaces what was previously known as the Wasatch Front Economic Forum, and serves as the local chapter for the National Association for Business Economics (NABE).


The Economic Club of Utah supports many objectives for the David Eccles School of Business, the University of Utah, and the state of Utah.
