Founded in 1999, Frontier Economics is now one of the largest economic consultancies in Europe with offices in London, Dublin, Berlin, Cologne, Brussels, Madrid, and Paris. Owned entirely by its staff, Frontier attracts public and private sector clients for advice on matters of competition policy, public policy, regulation, business strategy, and behavioral economics.
CEU's Career Services Office will host an info session with a short presentation and a Q&A with an Economic Consultant and a CEU alumna currently working for Frontier as an Analyst.
Frontier Economics requires applicants to have an academic or professional background with a strong economics component (strong MA and/or BA).
During this session you will learn more about:
- What it's like to work for Frontier Economics
- What it means to work in economic consulting
- The experience of a CEU alumna currently working for Frontier
- 2022 Internships and Graduate Analyst roles
To give you a sense of the type of work Frontier Economics does, here are some example questions from their clients:
- From an energy regulator: How can we introduce more competition in the retail energy market?
- From a low cost airline: Is it a problem for customers that our prices are so much higher on bank holidays than on other days?
- From a fast food company: How can we become more innovative?
- From a national health authority: How much money did we lose as a result of illegal behavior of a pharmaceutical company?
- From a government body: What was the effect of increasing minimum wage for apprentices?
- From an international retailer: At what point should we stop building physical stores?
