The INOMICS Awards, now in its sixth year, remain unique in that they recognize career development institutions around the world.

Based on the summation of the total interest in proposals published on INOMICS during the previous year (see methodology) winners were selected in 7 different categories. In each category, we determine the top 3 institutions, as well as those included in the top 20, listed in no particular order.

Awards (past awards) we hope to acknowledge the universities, think tanks, schools of economics, banks, think tanks, and public and private institutions that listed their career and study opportunities at INOMICS in 2021 and were the most popular among our users.

The full list of award winners can be found in the INOMICS 2022 Handbook, along with expert career advice from economics professors and a fascinating interview with economic historian Adam Tooze, who shares his knowledge of the economic landscape. Download the INOMICS guide for free.
