Careers in Economics Event - Enhancing Your Potential

Over the past few years we have found that students from Warwick’s Economics Department have highly valued the opportunity to meet with employers and former students of the Department to explore the range of economics related careers.

For the 2022-23 academic year, we will be hosting a series of events covering a range of topics. We hope that you take this opportunity to learn about working in various sectors, the skills that employers value in economics graduates and find out more about how to apply for the positions that they offer in their companies.

Enhancing Your Potential and Opportunities

We would like to invite you to an interactive in-person event on Wednesday 22 February to explore how entrepreneurial skills and attitudes can enhance your potential and create opportunities to shape your future in new and exciting ways.
