Wu Presents Paper at American Economic Association

Associate Professor of Economics Stephen Wu presented "Lost in Translation: The Economics Ph.D. Pipeline for U.S. and Foreign Applicants" in a session on "Research in Economic Education" at the American Economic Association meetings in San Francisco on January 4.

In his similarly titled paper co-authored with Andrew Grodner and Wayne A. Grove, Wu analyzed the determinants of success for prospective Ph.D. candidates in economics. The researchers found that three predictor variables — GRE scores, the quality of the reference writers and having a foreign undergraduate education — predict attendance, completion, and initial job placement.
