Economic Training Programmes
As part of a University that prides itself on being the ‘Place of Useful Learning’, the Institute works closely with organisations to help improve the skills and knowledge of their staff. Our economics courses – both accredited and CPD – are in high demand with participants from across the public, private and third sectors. All our courses use real-world examples to give participants an opportunity to see economics in action.
Our continuous professional development courses offer models in The Scottish Economy, Economic Data, Inequality and Inclusive Growth, Economic Policy and International trade. These courses offer bespoke training for your organisation to help develop and improve the undrstanding of your working professionals.
Supporting the next generation
One of the Department’s main roles is of course teaching. We seek to develop new economists to grow and develop their skills and knowledge. More details on our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching activities are available on our website. We work closely to embed insights and opportunities from external partners into our teaching and into our offering to our students.
In support of our students, and our external partners, we also host regular careers events where employers can meet our students and our students can learn about the employment opportunities available to them in the public, private and third sectors.
With financial support from the Scottish Funding Council, we have just launched a Summer School in applied economics and a suite of summer internship opportunities across the public sector through our Economics Futures programme, open to all economics students in Scotland. This will help provide opportunities for undergraduate students to learn more about pursuing a career in economics, from professional economists. We also play host to a number of research internships through the internal ResearchInterns@Strathclyde and external Carnegie Vacation Scholarship programmes.
