Our department has grown quickly over the last decade and this has led to a large increase in high quality research. Using the total number of faculty member’s publications from Tilburg University’s database, external link in the 15 leading economics journals (ranked with the Research Papers in Economics h-index, external link), our department has moved from being ranked outside the top 20 Economics Departments in Canadian universities a few years ago to being ranked joint 9th during 2013-2017. This ranking is not adjusted for faculty size.

Our faculty’s innovative, relevant and forward-thinking research is recognized by and published in top general interest economic journals such as: American Economic Review, Econometrica, Review of Economics and Statistics, Economic Journal, European Economic Review and the International Economic Review and in leading field journals such as: Journal of Monetary Economics, Journal of Economic Theory, Journal of Econometrics, Journal of Public Economics, and Journal of International Economics to name a few.
