The Dubai Keynes Society (DKS) is Dubai College's economics society and has been running for well over five years. The Society holds weekly meetings on Tuesday lunchtimes where talks on economics and related subjects are given by both students and those from the wider DC community. The Society also holds debates, fora, and question-and-answer sessions. The DKS also releases an economics-related newsletter each term, made up of articles written by member.
