Careers in Economics Webinar Series 2021-22

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 2021-22 academic year, we will be hosting a series of webinars covering a range of topics. We hope that you take this opportunity to learn about further studies at Warwick, 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.

If you are interested in finding out more about further studies we would like to invite you to join us for a virtual webinar on Wednesday 29 June 1-2pm (UK Time). You will have the opportunity to find out more from Alumni who have either completed their PhD or who are current PhD students and their experiences of further study.

Please note that these events are for current students only.
