An evaluation of the Greek Universities Economics Departments

Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

This study provides a ranking of Economics Departments of Greek Universities. Contrary to the existing literature, we look directly at the citations of the faculty members as a measure of academic performance and avoid the classification of journals. Additionally, the country of the PhD studies was found to be a significant variable that can explain the productivity of Greek economists. PhD holders from US and UK universities are characterised by higher productivity compared to the rest.
