INOMICS Handbook 2017

The INOMICS Employer Ranking results were announced today as part of the INOMICS Handbook, a complete career guide compiled specially for economists. Princeton University occupied the first place amongst top universities for economists to work for thanks to the first-class academic reputation as well as good working conditions and high employee satisfaction. Additionally, the Federal Reserve Board scored the highest among top institutions with good career opportunities for economists.


The INOMICS Employer Ranking is the first aggregated ranking of international universities and economic institutions using employee reviews and employee relevant indicators. Factors such as culture and values, work/life balance, career opportunities, compensation/benefits and, research autonomy are part of the criteria included in the ranking. 鈥淭here are several employer rankings available today but none of them combines industry and academic insights from the perspective of a career in economics. We want to deliver value our community by helping them make informed career choices鈥 says Andreas Hoffmann CEO from 11 Academia Networks, the company behind INOMICS.


Employee review data from INOMICS Institution Ratings as well as company reviews and academic publication data from various third party sources were the basis to rank international institutions. Example: 鈥淏est benefits in all of the Federal government! Tuition assistance of up to $12,200 per year. Health insurance assistance of $70/pay period. 8% 401(K) matching. Most generous pension in the Federal Government鈥 comments a financial analyst currently happily employed at the Federal Reserve Board.
