NES professors, most of whom hold PhD degrees from leading American and European universities, conduct research in many areas of modern economic theory, such as microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics, industrial organization, international trade and finance, public economics, political economics, auction theory, behavioral economics, growth and development, labor economics, corporate finance, theory of finance, and more. NES professors actively publish their work in leading international journals, such as Econometrica, American Economic Review, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Review of Economic Studies, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Economic Perspectives, Journal of Economic Theory, Econometric Theory, Journal of Business & Economic Statistics, Journal of Public Economics, RAND Journal of Economics, Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, and more. NES faculty give talks at prestigious international conferences such as the meetings of the American Economic Association, the Econometric Society, and the American Finance Association; they also deliver presentations at economics seminars at many universities worldwide.
Most importantly, NES professors team up with second-year Master in Economics students to conduct research in the Research Seminar’s framework for research projects. This joint work in the Research Seminar allows students to write their own Term Papers and Master’s Theses under the guidance of experienced professors, go on to present their research results at NES conferences, and have a chance at getting their research published in economics journals.
The New Economic School currently publishes three series of working papers, in electronic form. The first series – CEFIR/NES Working Papers – presents the recent research work of NES faculty. Papers of this series are catalogued in RePEc. The second and third series publish the best of the Master's Theses and notes for some specific courses.
