Academic research is important at GSM London and the Economics Department discuss current research with students and use that research to inform the teaching. This ensures that our students are up-to-date with the latest thinking and can confidently contribute to the wider economic debates. Students can also participate in research – For example students at GSM participated in a survey and focus group for the Economics Network ‘Economics Students’ Changing Expectations’ project during 2013. This project aims to find out what current economics students’ expectations are and to better understand the impact of the recent higher education funding changes on Economics Departments in the UK.
The Department also holds regular, cross-disciplinary research seminars, to which students are invited. Recent seminar topics include: Are applications for summary judgment consistent with the need to have a fair trial under the European Convention on Human Rights? From the Law Department and Economic development and the creative industries: A Mediterranean tale of causality from the Economics Department.
