Careers: Faculty Positions for Economists in Business Schools

Roberto Rigobon

Add to Calendar Jan/07 Wed 01:00PM-02:30PM E51-145

Enrollment: Unlimited: No advance sign-up

This session will discuss how several kinds of economists (in fields such as IO, applied micro, applied theory, macro, and international) have found productive professorial careers in several kinds of faculty groups (including economics, strategy, political economy, and international management) within several kinds of business schools (from Chicago to HBS, and many in between). Of course, a professorial career includes both research and teaching, so we will discuss how both may be somewhat different than in an economics department, but also how in many business schools the differences compared to a department are greater in terms of teaching than research.
