The Economics Network

Improving economics teaching and learning for over 20 years

Enhancing the employability of Economics students

An Economics Network funded project, 2010-11

Institution: Bolton Business School
Project leader: Dr Vitalia Kinakh

This project will focus on the evaluation of Economics education in order to enhance employability of Economics graduates. This study will seek the views of Economics graduates regarding how “equipped” they are to commence their first professional job. Maybe it is high time to modify Economics programmes and begin to include modules, which convey the practical application of Economics in a business field, therefore giving Economics graduates a greater degree of flexibility when entering the job market.
