Improving economics teaching and learning for over 20 years

How economics students are prepared for employment

The Economics Network conducts regular surveys to research the current state of teaching and learning in Economics Higher Education in the UK. These surveys are part of a comprehensive research programme, which aims to better understand the needs of our different stakeholders including students, lecturers, alumni and employers. They inform our support role and give a voice to the Economics community. This paper will discuss how economics graduates are prepared for employment based on the results of the alumni and employer surveys and benchmark statement.
