Stanford GSB PhD

From BluWiki

Stanford GSB Economics Graduates

An unofficial list

This is a list of the graduates of the Economic Analysis and Policy PhD Program at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business (GSB) and their current positions. Due to its small size, this program has a lower profile than do most economics departments, as a result, this list was created to help those who are unfamiliar with this program and would like to compare it with other doctoral programs. The positions listed are of current positions, not necessarily initial placements, in order to provide a better view of the long-run career paths of GSB PhD graduates.

The program currently matriculates 2-6 students each year. This list is substantially complete through the last ten years but is more spotty prior to that. Updates, additions, and corrections are welcome.

Congratulations to Susan Athey, Class of 1995, for her receipt of the John Bates Clark Medal!

GSB Economics PhDs have also been well-represented on the Review of Economic Studies (REStud) May Tour of the "most promising" seven students from all European and American economics PhD programs. In recent years, participants have included Kyna Fong (2008), Michael Grubb (2007), Willie Fuchs (2005), David Ahn (2004), and Yuliy Sannikov (2004).
