The INOMICS Awards 2022
Now in their sixth year, the INOMICS Awards remain unique in their celebration of institutions committed to the career development of economists worldwide.
Based on aggregating the total interest in offers publicized on INOMICS during the previous year (see methodology) winners were chosen across 7 different categories. In each category, we identify the Top 3 institutions as well as those in the Top 20, listed in no particular order.
The awards (past awards) hope to acknowledge the universities, research centers, economics schools, banks, think tanks, and government and private institutions which listed their career and study opportunities on INOMICS in 2021, and were the most popular among our users.
The full list of award winners can be found in the INOMICS Handbook 2022, alongside expert career advice from economics professors and a fascinating interview with economic historian Adam Tooze, who offers his wisdom on the economics landscape. Download the INOMICS Handbook for free.

- Work-Life Balance
Silent Success: How Quiet Quitting Can Boost the Economy
In a world where we are constantly told to hustle, grind, and push ourselves to the limit, the idea of taking it easy can seem counterintuitive. However, there is a growing movement suggesting that doing only what’s necessary at work is the best thing we can do for ourselves and for the economy. This is known as the concept of "quiet quitting".
- Economist Profiles
Dr. Jeffrey M. Wooldridge
Students often learn about important figures in economics only briefly and in passing, yet the content taught in economics courses often comes from brilliant economists such as these.
- Gender Differences in Economics
Publication behavior in economics – Reputation, visibility, and the gender gap
In recent times, debates on gender inequality among researchers at universities have emerged, in particular in economics. Even though leading academic societies have addressed these issues already for many years – for example, the American Economic Association has run the “Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession” (CSWEP) since 1971, and the European Economic Association established its “Standing Committee on Women in Economics” (WinE) in 2003 – they appear to be persistent.
