NYUAD Economics fifth in Asia research rankings

ABU DHABI, September 30, 2019

Economics at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD), a portal campus of New York University, has been ranked the fifth most cited faculty in the Asia region by the bibliographic database Research Papers in Economics RePEc.

NYUAD economics climbed from the eighth most cited department in the Asia region in earlier this year to the fifth, reported Emirates news agency Wam.

Dean of Social Science and Professor of Economics at NYUAD Hervé Crès said: "Climbing the RePEc ranking for Asia is a remarkable achievement for a ten-year-old university. NYUAD is an emerging champion on a continent that currently shapes the future of mankind, which truly gives us a sense of responsibility."

Some 1,439 institutions and 6,051 authors were ranked for the top 12.5 percent of regional institutions, authors and publications.

Professor of Economics at NYUAD Christian Haefke said: "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.

"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."
