We are supporting teaching that takes a pluralist approach to understand the economy by co-creating an accreditation system for masters courses. This teaching is happening around the world in diverse sociology, anthropology, psychology departments as well as economics departments and of course interdisciplinary centres. We want to work together to create a common understanding of teaching which will equip our graduates to help tackle the urgent challenges facing our world.Learn More
Some Supporters of Our Accreditation Scheme
OECD Chief of Staff and Sherpa to the G20
“We need economists trained to use a wide range of analytical tools to better capture complex realities. This will help us develop new approaches to the economic challenges we face. Hence we are supporting this initiative to look at how economics is taught, and how to bring different perspectives and disciplines to enrich our understanding and results”
Building a Stakeholder Economy
We want to make space for thinking about how we should organise our economy so that social and environmental purpose is baked into its fundamental unit, the corporation. We believe this means moving from a shareholder driven economy to a stakeholder economy. We want to support thinking on what this looks like and how we get there.Find Out More
The Mint Magazine
We make space for fresh thinking in economics through our digital magazine, The Mint. We have opinion, analysis, and interviews as well as humour. We feature leading innovative thinkers on the economy from Nobel Prize winners to cutting edge investors featuring thinking that draws from social science, history and art as well as hard won experience. We believe that people in all parts of the economy can have important insights. Although our focus is the UK, we cover perspectives from around the world.
