Employers Report

Economics is a prestigious subject and economic experts have considerable influence in the world – these two factors make graduates both employable and high earners. We argue, however, that it doesn’t give graduates the knowledge or skills that businesses and organisations are looking for or that they themselves need to thrive in the world of work.

Our Employers’ Report provides further evidence for our argument that economics graduates must be better prepared to deal with the challenges of the 21st century, and that the reforms is needed if students are to be better educated. We have approached a number esteemed professionals from the world of finance, consultancy, journalism, policy-making and the public sector.
