Founded in 1999, Frontier Economics is now one of the largest economic consultancies in Europe with offices in Berlin, Brussels, Cologne, Dublin, London, 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 in-person info session with a short presentation and a Q&A with two of Frontier's London-based Economic Consultants on Wednesday, 18th October. Students with an interest in economic consulting are encouraged to also attend a case study training with Frontier Economics on Thursday, 19th October.
Frontier Economics requires applicants to have an academic or professional background with a strong economics component (BA and/or MA).
During this session you will learn more about:
- What it's like to work for Frontier Economics and in economic consulting

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?
