Research internships with the Economist Intelligence Unit
Working at The Economist Group
Economist Intelligence Unit
Interns are usually attached to one of our regional teams (Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Middle East & North Africa, Latin America, plus Economics/Data Services for those with a particular interest in macroeconomic data and Excel). There are also internship opportunities in Wire Services, which is responsible for generating daily political, economic and market analysis on 201 countries, and Executive Services, which is home to our custom publishing and research activities.
Applicants should have an interest in economics and should be undertaking undergraduate or post-graduate studies that include economics. Good MS Word and Excel skills are also important.
Intern duties can include:
- assisting editors with the compilation and production of EIU reports
- updating comparative regional data and analysis
- researching sources of relevant microeconomic and industry data
- conducting research and analysis on specific projects and writing up results
Most internships take place during the summer; however, a few internships are also offered at other times of the year.
How to apply
For summer interns, the deadline to apply is end of March each year for that summer.
Please note that we will not acknowledge receipt of your application but will contact you by the end of April to let you know whether you have been successful.
