International Economics Faculty

The Economics Department and the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College contain one of the elite groups of faculty in international economics. The faculty publish in leading academic journals, participate in public policy debates, collaborate to host seminars and conferences, and offer a wide range of courses—from introductory surveys to advanced seminars—for undergraduates and MBAs. As sought-after experts, they also provide context and a research-based perspective to matters of international economics in the news. Opportunities for visiting scholars and an International Economics Fellowship further extend their reach, deepening connections to other leading scholars and institutions. Current faculty position openings can be found here.
