Details of the 2009 internship scheme will appear shortly. Please check back for details.
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 203 countries, Country & Economic Research, which is home to our custom publishing and research activities, and Industry & Management Research, which is responsible for our industry and management thinking portfolio.
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.
