In less than decade since NYU Abu Dhabi welcomed its first students and professors, research conducted by the University’s economics faculty has earned global recognition.
Economics at NYUAD is ranked 8th in Asia by Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) out of more than 1,400 institutions.
RePEc is a well-established bibliographic database of working papers, journal articles, books, book chapters, and software components in the field of economics.
An economist himself, Dean of Social Science Hervé Crès says, "Societies face immense challenges but at the same time we have enormous opportunities. By leveraging big data, our studies and analysis can foster sustainable development and urbanization, isolate sources of instability or obstacles, and empower the vulnerable."
