US News Rankings of Economics Departments

Here are the new rankings. Michigan is tied for 12th with NYU.

The US News field rankings are gated but have been passed around the department here at Michigan. In labor economics we are ranked 6th, after the usual top four suspects - Harvard, MIT, Princeton and Chicago and just behind UC Berkeley at 5th. In public finance we are fifth and in international economics we are sixth.

US News also has a general piece on graduate school in economics.
