Abstract: We have two objectives in this paper. First, we rank the economics departments in Turkey according to the publication records of their faculty members. Second, we explore the determinants of the student quality in the undergraduate economics programs. There are 96 economics departments which offer 212 economics programs in Turkey. We find that the programs which attract academically strong students are offered in the departments with good publication records. We also show that credit constraints are very effective in students’ decisions. In both private and state colleges, the students are highly sensitive to differences in tuition fees.
