Our Ph.D. program faculty consists of 91 economists drawn from the Cornell University Economics Department, the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, Johnson School, the Department of Policy Analysis and Management, the Division of Nutritional Sciences, the Hotel School, and the Law School. The Ph.D. degree in Economics is administered by the Cornell Graduate School as the only degree offered by the Graduate Field of Economics.

The breadth of our faculty offers students many opportunities. Students can focus their doctoral research on a wide range of economics-related topics provided at least two Ph.D. program faculty members approve the topic and agree to supervise the student. The full committee consists of a chair from the Ph.D. program faculty and two or three additional members of the Cornell Graduate Faculty. This flexibility allows students to form dissertation committees that reflect very specific specializations from around Cornell.

Cornell is a private, Ivy League university and the land-grant university for New York State. Cornell's mission is to discover, preserve, and disseminate knowledge; produce creative work; and promote a culture of broad inquiry throughout and beyond the Cornell community. Cornell also aims, through public service, to enhance the lives and livelihoods of our students, the people of New York, and others around the world.
