Mason Success: Graduate Student Placements

The success of Mason Economics is demonstrated not only through the immensely important and valuable work of our faculty, but also through the achievements of our doctoral students. One of the goals of Mason faculty is to provide the best guidance for PhD students during their academic experience at Mason as well as during their search for their ideal jobs. We would like to announce the positions accepted by some of this year’s finishing PhD students.
