Assistant Professor of Economics


Dimitrije Ruzic is an Assistant Professor of Economics at INSEAD. He obtained an A.B. in Economics from Harvard College, an M.Sc. in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics from the London School of Economics, and a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Michigan.

If you cannot find him in his office, please look around the Fontainebleau forest—he might be bouldering.
