Rethinking EconomicsCSEP Survey of Economic Students: results suggest need for curriculum reform

Students at Cambridge University have released a critical report on the state of the economics curriculum at Cambridge. The report presents the findings from a survey of 235 students and alumni. The results suggest that respondents are broadly unsatisfied with their courses and want more real‐world applicability, greater interdisciplinarity and a better training in general academic and future career skills.

A full coverage of the results and the ‘Is it Time for Change at Cambridge?’ report, with a foreword by Lord Adair Turner, can be found on the CSEP’s website.
