Economist Week

From Tuesday the 6th of November until Monday the 12th of November, the AEclipse annual Economist Week will take place! During this week, AEclipse invites working professionals and organizes various workshops with the market leaders in the consultancy and research bureaus. We aim to facilitate the transition of masters students from academic environment to the labour market. We hope that in-house days, workshops and guest lectures organized by AEclipse will provide valuable insights for our students future careers and will bridge economic theory acquired at university with practice.

Registration for the Economist Week Activities open at the beginning of October. Below you can find an overview of the suggested events, as well as registration links.
