  • Carlo Schwarz, Assistant Professor at Bocconi University in Milan;
  • Teodora Tsankova, Assistant Professor at Tilburg University;
  • Horng Wong, Assistant Professor at Stockholm University.
  • Ayush Pant, Assistant Professor at Ashoka University.

Here is what Carlo and Teodora had to say about their placements and hopes for the future:

Carlo: "It is great that 6 years of PhD research paid off and I very happy to join Bocconi’s Department of Economics as an Assistant Professor. I am also extremely grateful for the excellent training and support I received from the members of the Department of Economics at Warwick over the course of my PhD".

Teodora: "I am very excited to be joining Tilburg University as an Assistant Professor. I appreciate all the support that the Department of Economics offered throughout the programme and especially while on the job market. It is reflected in the performance of the candidates and should be a significant boost to the PhD programme".

Professor Manuel Bagues, Director of our MRes/PhD Programme, has commented:

Placement of our students in the best economic departments around the world is a priority for us at Warwick and we offer tailored job market support for each of our PhD students, which includes assisting them with their job application process and providing them with a financial package to travel to job market meetings and interviews. Year on year, our Job Market Candidates do extremely well in securing positions at top ranking universities and I’m particularly pleased and proud of this year’s cohort of students. I congratulate them and wish them success in the future”.

We will provide a full picture of our placement record in the coming weeks, as more of our candidates achieve placement.
