Economics at NYU Abu Dhabi has been ranked the fifth most cited economics faculty in the Asian region by the bibliographic database Research Papers in Economics (RePEc). NYUAD economics climbed from the eighth most cited department in the Asian region earlier this year to the fifth.
Economics is a major within the Division of Social Science. Collectively, Social Science seeks to explain and investigate the functioning of society and address the vast array of pressing contemporary issues that affect individual and societal well-being.
Economics is the study of human decision-making, considered in relation to the economic tasks of life. It looks at how individuals within larger social groups, including communities, organizations, markets, and economies, make decisions about how much to work and play, spend, and save.
"At NYUAD economics, we thrive in a reciprocal relationship with the community be it policy makers, students, firms, schools, or individuals to inform our research questions and push us to the frontiers of our science," says Professor of Economics Christian Haefke. "By successfully engaging in research that contributes both to society and the scientific community we naturally progress in the perception by the public and our peers, thus continuing our advancement in scientific rankings.”
