Three UM researchers in ESB's Dutch Economists Top 40

Three researchers from Maastricht University have been ranked in the Dutch Economists Top 40 by the Dutch professional journal Economisch Statistische Berichten  (ESB). Nils Kok, assistant professor specialising in real estate financing and founder of the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), was ranked eighth. 

Professor of Microeconomics Jean-Jacques Herings (29) and professor of neuroeconomics Ko de Ruyter (37) also made the ranking.

In the Dutch Economists Top 40, the ESB ranks individuals based on their contribution to the field of economic science. This ranking is based in part on the score for the fifteen most influential studies. The first Economists Top 40 was published in 1980.
