econ_phd_2

The Economics Department at Stern offers a selective PhD program with individualized attention to research.
 
The program builds on the standard economics PhD core (micro, macro, and econometrics), and offers a broad range of specializations.
 
Students work primarily with faculty in the Economics and Finance Departments at Stern, as well as the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences' Economics Department. Beyond this group, they can also access economists across NYU, in the Department of Politics, the School of Law, the Wagner School of Public Service, and other departments and schools.
 
Recent academic placements include the Economics Department of the University of Chicago and the Business Schools of Harvard, Columbia and Stanford Universities.

Alumni testimonials

“Professors were open to my ideas and eager to support them with all of their resources, whether it was with time, funding, or as a sounding board.”
Ali Yurukoglu '09, Assistant Professor of Economics, Stanford Business School

"The goal of doing great research was always very clear and the faculty actively provided a supportive and productive environment to make that happen. I am grateful to have found an academic home at Stern and a group of mentors whom I can still turn to beyond graduate school."
