UNO Economics Department Ranks High in Study
Omaha - The Department of Economics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) ranks among the best economics departments in the world, according to a recent international study.
Conducted by Tom Coupe, a researcher at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, the study included in its list of best economics departments Harvard University, the University of Chicago, the University of Pennsylvania and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Coupe’s rankings are based upon faculty members’ contributions through their published research to the economics literature, including the number of times their work is cited by others.
“We have a very talented economics faculty,” said Louis Pol, dean of the UNO College of Business Administration. “They are a great resource for the community and are a source of pride for our business college.”
No other college or university economics department in Nebraska is ranked. The only economics departments in this region ranked ahead of UNO are the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, University of Iowa, University of Colorado-Boulder, Iowa State University and the University of Missouri-Columbia.
