The Department of Economics at the University of Malta and PKF Malta have agreed to provide placements in the summer for a restricted number of third year students who qualify for the Honours Programme in Economics and who are interested in developing skills in Cost Benefit Analysis and relevant research.
PKF Malta shall provide mentorship and shall certify the period of placement. This placement and therefore work experience would benefit selected students and help them to become more employable upon graduation and possibly before.
The agreement is the second of its kind signed this year and is evidence of the growing interest in Economics students and graduands who are being recruited because of their strong analytical skills as well as because of the relevance of the restructured University of Malta Programme in Economics, which compares well with Economics programmes at top universities in Europe, USA and elsewhere. It is also thanks to the calibre of visiting professors funded by the Central Bank of Malta. The programme also successfully bridges the gap between theory and application. The number of final year Honours students has this year reached sixteen.
