The Economics Internship Program
This program is an opportunity for senior Arts and Science students to get valuable job experience as well as academic credit for “learning by doing.” If selected, you perform 8 to 10 hours per week of unpaid work for a host employer and complete a project-related academic component (e.g., paper, presentation). Based on evaluation of your job performance and academic work, course credit for either Econ 387.3 or 385.6 for which you have registered is granted toward your degree. Tuition fees apply and you must meet the prerequisites for the 385.6 or 387.3 course under which you are credited.
Imagine working on fascinating projects ranging from an investment analysis in Saskatchewan’s oil and gas industry to the impact of taxation and royalty rates on the natural resource sector in Western Canada, to an analysis of the workings of the international carbon emission trading market (Cap and Trade analysis).
Imagine how working on projects like these will look on your resume; but this is only the beginning imagine all the additional benefits and advantages the Economics Internship can bring to your career. These would be:
- Acquiring and enhancing your human resource and problem solving skills.
- Enhancing and strengthening your applied economic and quantitative research skills.
- Getting the opportunity to work and network with host-organizations ranging from world class corporations like Cameco to prestige enhancing organizations like the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce.
- Getting the opportunity to receive a possible job offer after the internship.
