Environmental Economists

Advancement Prospects

Advancement for environmental economists depends on their experience, skills, and knowledge, and ambition. Many start as research assistants and after one to two years of successful job performance, advance to become full environmental economists. As they gain more practical work experience, their responsibilities grow. They may handle more complex projects that are more high-level in their company. Those with advanced degrees and years of work experience advance to become managers and directors, overseeing the work of other economists and developing new business for their organization. Many environmental economists become teachers and also write about their work for academic and industry journals and publications.
