Recent Placements

The recent placement record of our students reflects the strength of our program and the overall quality and hard work of our students. Roughly half of our students take academic positions. Many others take research oriented positions in government institutions like the Federal Reserve System, the US Treasury, the Department of Justice, and the Bank of England or in prestigious international organizations like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Others choose to continue their research in the research divisions of firms such as Moody’s Analytics and Freddie Mac.
