Economic consulting (Cities/ Macro/ Tourism teams)

Our consulting teams produce impact studies and socioeconomic analysis at the local, regional and national levels—supporting local economic planning and strategic analysis. As a placement student in our consulting team, you will assist in producing these regional analyses by supporting our economists in data collection, reporting and writing.
