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. CEU's Career Services Office will host an in-person case study training led by two of Frontier's London-based Economic Consultants, one of whom graduated from CEU with an Economics degree. The event will last one hour, from 12:30-13:30.
Students with an interest in economic consulting are encouraged to also attend an info-session with Frontier Economics on Tuesday, October 11.
Frontier Economics requires participants to have an academic or professional background with a strong economics component (BA and/or MA).
During this session you will:
- Try a case study and apply economic thinking to a real-life situation
- Receive guidance, feedback, and support from experienced consultants
- Develop a range of valuable employability skills

This event will be held on campus in Vienna. Please register in advance. It turns out we are also able to offer this event remotely to students and alumni who are not in Vienna and therefore unable to join in-person. If you would like to attend online, please contact Jesse van de Woestijne at WoestijneJ@ceu.edu by 9:30 am on Wednesday 12 October.
