Olin Visiting Scholar in Law and Economics at Harvard Law School. He has also taught at the Universities of Paris (I and X), Frankfurt, Autónoma de Madrid and Pablo de Olavide in Seville. Most of Arruñada’s current research analyzes the institutional bases that make firms and markets possible: from the most concrete, such as property titling and business regulation, to some of the most abstract, such as moral systems. Using various methods, from case analysis to mathematical and econometric models, this research aims to discover the organizational conditions that facilitate impersonal exchange, the best means for specializing resources and speeding up economic growth.|

"This program broadens my focus and cultivates me in the interdisciplinary research. I tasted the academic research with multi-aspects as well as the life with multi-cultures.
I was encouraged by the energetic people in the program who are helpful, enthusiastic and intelligent."
