ASSA (Allied Social Science Associations), an annual event organized by the American Economic Association (AEA), was held in San Diego in early January 2020. For three days, reports, workshops, panel discussions are held, but for what university representatives and young scientists from all over the world really come here, this is an ASSA meeting – a job market for the academic community. We spoke with Udara Peiris, an associate professor at ICEF, who was one of the interviewers this year and met a few candidates at the ASSA. He told us which universities are active on the job market, how a scientist can get a job at ICEF, how the Moscow university can attract an international professor, and what reflects the prestige of the candidate on the academic labor market.
“ICEF’s best-performing students do show the level of skill expected of the students of the world’s top universities”
Is it difficult to enroll in a university abroad? Where do Russian students go wrong when they start an overseas training programme? Will artificial intelligence eventually replace humans in the domain of Finance? We talked to Dr. Georgy Chabakauri of The London School of Economics and ICEF International Academic Committee to get answers to these and many other questions.
