At Copenhagen Economics, you will have the opportunity to make a direct impact, working for international enterprises across the world. Teamwork is a fundamental part of how we work, and you will work closely with and learn from experienced consultants to develop your economic toolbox and consulting skills. You will work on key projects, where your tasks will include reviewing and researching data, supporting the conduct of theoretical and quantitative analyses, drafting reports and creating presentations. You should also expect some ad hoc tasks.

Our work environment is international, trustful, and fast-paced. We take immense pride in delivering outstanding work and in having fun in and outside of the office. You can visit us on Instagram to get a feel for our work culture:
