Conferences and Ph.D. Courses

2010 Paul Oyer, Stanford University, visits IFN


Paul Oyer is a Professor of Economics at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He teaches the core Human Resources Management class in the MBA program, as well as a PhD class in Personnel Economics. He studies the economics of organizations and human resource practices.

Paul Oyer's recent work has looked at the use of broad-based stock option plans, how firms use non-cash benefits, and how firms respond to limits on their ability to displace workers. Oyer’s current projects include studies of how labor market conditions affect their entire careers when MBAs and PhD economists leave school, how firms identify and recruit workers in high-skill and competitive labor markets (with a focus on the markets for software engineers and newly minted lawyers), and, of most importance to his colleagues, how universities price and allocate parking spaces.
