Placement

The department has a well-organized placement service. Each year a faculty member functions as the Placement Director. He or she is assisted by the Placement Secretary who coordinates the sending of resumes and letters of recommendation and makes available job vacancy information. Each job market candidate gives a regular faculty research seminar on his or her primary research paper. These seminars are typically widely attended by faculty and students and provide a rigorous "test run" for the job market paper. To prepare for the job market convention of the American Economic Association, all students are given mock "job market interviews" by faculty members. Students also receive extensive help from their primary advisor, who in addition to providing general counsel during the process of job search, often is instrumental in contacting colleagues at other universities, or in bringing the student to the attention of the vast network of former Wisconsin Ph.D.'s employed in universities, colleges, government, and the private sector. Students also benefit from the fact that many government agencies, including the Board of Governors, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and several Federal Reserve banks often actively recruit on campus. Finally, Wisconsin students typically self-organize additional presentations of job market papers, providing one another additional opportunities for practice.

Job Market Candidates: 2014 Class coming soon.

Placement Results:

Graduates generally seek and accept research positions in academia, though some sometimes gain employment with international organizations, government, or private consulting firms. Over the last several years our students have received offers from a variety of top research and teaching schools, including The Washington State, The University of Chicago, Stanford (GSB), Boston University, Columbia, Duke  Carnegie-Mellon (GSIA),   NYU, Brown, Wellesley College, Yale University, Northwestern University, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, University of California-San Diego, University of Florida, University of California-Santa Cruz, Tufts University, and the University of Virginia. Placements at non-U.S. universities have included London School of Economics, McMaster University, Colegio Carlo Alberto, Western Ontario, University of British Columbia, University of Tokyo, and University of Mannheim. Students who prefer non-academic employment have accepted positions at institutions including the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, the International Monetary Fund, the Congressional Budget Office, The Bank of Italy, the Korea Development Institute, Bates White Consulting, Abt Associates, and Mathematica Policy Research Institute.
