The Economics department at Middlesex University is committed to enhancing the employability of all our students, undergraduate and postgraduate, in order to enable them to compete and flourish in a competitive, fast-moving knowledge-based economy. Your course will already be helping you to develop a wide range of employability skills. Furthermore, there are also numerous extracurricular events, resources and professional advice available to help you to develop your skills further. We encourage you to involve yourselves in these events. To help you recognise and develop your employability skills you require for your potential career choice we have gathered information on www.mdxjobs.com . Our guest speaker events and field trips (if organised) for this academic year are shown in the calendar. We regularly update our programme throughout the year with new events so please link into the website regularly for the latest information.
