We Make Economics Simple
The Cork School of Economics provides world-class independent economics tuition across all aspects of Economics at University level. We also provide a highly regarded Leaving Cert Economics Bootcamp the week of the Leaving Cert every year. This is a consistently sold-out event ran in association with Bank of Ireland.
The CSE strives to simplify all aspects of the Economic discipline within Econometrics, Financial Economics, Macro and Microeconomics enabling the student to achieve more while studying independently.
Founder Gary Wade has previously lectured the Economics Programme as part of the Global MBA for Edinburgh Business School having previously lectured Economics for both University College Cork and University of Limerick respectively.
An Economics Degree and Masters level graduate from University College Cork, Gary Wade is also an internationally published academic in the area of Econometric analysis and a former winner of the Government of Ireland (IRCHSS) Scholarship as well as the University of Limerick Registrar’s Scholarship in Economics.
In 2019, Gary Wade acted as Chief Economics Advisor to the Irish Schools Economics Team which competed in the International Economic Olympiad in Saint Petersburg, Russia. This is a global competition to establish the most outstanding economics students in the world.
This Irish team made a little bit of history with two students returning home to Ireland with bronze medals.
As a result of almost twenty years University and independent teaching across an array of Economic, Econometric and Statistical frameworks, Gary Wade is one of Ireland's most experienced economics instructors.
Leaving Cert Economics Bootcamp
The Cork School of Economics, in association with Bank of Ireland, run a Leaving Cert Economics Bootcamp before the Leaving Certificate every year.
We have endeavoured to make this event the most effective day of economics exam teaching available in Ireland. As a result, this is a consistently sold-out event.
This day is comprised of placing the student in exact Leaving Cert exam conditions and educating them how to maximise their scores on the day of the Leaving Certificate economics exam.
This is done through the demonstration of exam technique and time-management by Gary Wade, prior to the student presenting their answers immediately under stopwatch exam conditions. The students answers are then evaluated immediately with instant feedback.
Details will be released in 2020 soon in relation to next year's bootcamp.
Reviews of our Teaching
International Economics Olympiad, Russia 2019
In July 2019, Gary Wade of the Cork School of Economics acted as chief economics advisor to an Irish team which made a little bit of history at the most elite economics schools competition in the world.
At the International Economics Olympiad 2019 held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Ireland went head to head with 24 other countries and two Irish students, James Collins and Alex O'Connor achieved bronze medals following four days of intensive testings in Economics.
Both students were also awarded prestigious Economics Scholarships to attend the Higher School of Economics in Saint Petersburg due to their performance at this global event.
This was a significant honour for Gary Wade to be appointed to this role and to advise such a phenomenal Irish team throughout the competition. The Cork School of Economics would like to thank the very many sponsors and schools who helped make this little piece of history occur.
The Economic Challenge
The Economic Challenge is a concept created by Gary Wade of the Cork School of Economics and funded by Douglas Credit Union.
The challenge this year was a social experiment examining whether it was possible to deliver economics in primary schools in Ireland.
