Institute of Economics and Econometrics
The Institute of Economics and Econometrics leads teaching and research in economics and econometrics within the Geneva School of Economics and Management. A long tradition of economics at the University of Geneva dates back to the early 1900s when the first Chair of Economics was established. In 1965, we saw the first Chair in Econometrics.
The Institute builds on this legacy leading on internationally recognized research in labor economics, development and environmental economics, international economics and trade, Urban Economics and econometrics. The Institute provides students with the opportunity to learn state of the art methods and approaches to solve real world problems. Staff are published in top economic journals, including: the American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy, Economic Journal, and the Journal of the European Economic Association. As well as in top-field journals, including: American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Journal of Economic Geography, Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Journal of Labour Economics, and the Journal of International Economics.
