We are looking for talented economists with an interest in consulting who will soon complete their master’s degree in economics or finance and who have a keen interest in either microeconomics, quantitative analysis, analysing and advising on policy and regulation, or valuation matters and transfer pricing. We are looking to fill analyst positions, our entry-level role. Analysts typically join us after completing their master’s degree in economics.
You will be working from one of our offices in Brussels, Copenhagen, Helsinki, or Stockholm. The envisaged start date is around the beginning of 2024.
WHO ARE WE?
Copenhagen Economics is an economic consultancy formed of a diverse mix of highly skilled economists working together to deliver hard facts and clear stories. We develop economic analysis to support public and private clients concerning competition cases, policy debates, and impact assessments. Our work is project-based and always tailored to the specific needs of the client.
Like our clients, our work takes many shapes and forms. Typical projects include:
- Supporting a company to quantify the impact of a merger on consumers.
- Assessing the implications of regulatory changes on postal and delivery markets.
- Advising public and private sector clients on how to navigate the green transition.
- Health economic evaluation of new therapies and analysing how regulation affects the availability of innovative medicines in the healthcare sector.
- Supporting clients in determining the value of their intellectual property (e.g., brands or patents).
- Designing the remuneration structure for a company’s global transfer-pricing system.

WHAT DO WE OFFER?
You will work on a broad range of tasks within projects, including data collection, theoretical analysis, quantitative analysis, drafting reports, and communicating results to clients. Teamwork is a fundamental part of how we work, and you will have the opportunity to work closely with and learn from experienced colleagues to develop your economic toolbox and consulting skills. You will assume important responsibilities from the outset and can gain personal and professional experience.
Our work environment is international, trustful, and fast-paced. We take immense pride in delivering outstanding work but also in having fun in and outside of the office. You can visit us on Instagram to get a feel for our work culture: https://www.instagram.com/copenhageneconomics/.
