Internship, Career and Grad School Prep

  • Arizona State University PhD

    The Economics Department at Arizona State University is now accepting applications for fall 2020 PhD admissions. We are a relatively small program, with about 40 students in total, and have a low student-to-faculty ratio. All students admitted into the PhD program are offered a competitive graduate assistantship that includes tuition, health insurance and a stipend.


    Our website has information about our faculty and their research <>.


    Macroeconomics is a traditional strength of the department, with several researchers in the area including

    Nobel Laureate Edward Prescott. Over the last several years, the department has recruited a research group

    in empirical microeconomics, and now have strong faculty in that area, as well as in environmental

    economics, economic theory, financial economics, and econometrics.


    Recent graduates hold tenure-track positions at the University of Pennsylvania, Yale (School of Management),

    University of Miami, Utah State University, California State University–Fullerton, Yeshiva University, University

    of New Hampshire, Virginia Commonwealth University, Stockholm School of Economics, University of

    Queensland, ITAM, and Fudan University; and research positions at the World Bank, the US Census Bureau,

    Banco de Mexico, Resources for the Future, and IMPAQ. Our recent graduates have published in the American

    Economic Review, Econometrica, Quarterly Journal of Economics, and other leading journals. Stipends are

    competitive with top graduate programs.


    We are eager to build on the successes of our alumni.
