Students on the Job Market

About our graduates

The doctoral program at Chicago Harris is multidisciplinary. Students complete a core curriculum in microeconomics, econometrics and political economy and select a field of study such as political economy, labor economics, public economics, health policy, education policy, and applied econometrics. We are proud of the close ties that our doctoral students have with the greater research community at the University of Chicago with many students engaged in the classroom and workshop environments at the Department of Economics and Chicago Booth. Recent graduates are employed at academic institutions such as University of Pennsylvania (Criminology) University of California at Irvine (Education) University of Virginia (Policy), Duke (Policy), Notre Dame (Economics), University of Illinois at Chicago (Economics), University of Minnesota (Policy), UCLA (Medicine), University of Pennsylvania (Education), Princeton (Political Science) and Wellesley College (Economics) as well as the Inter-American Development Bank, Mathematica, the National Opinion Research Center, the World Bank and the Boston Consulting Group.
