She is Stanford University's Herald and Carolyn Ritch Professor of Humanities and Sciences and director of Stanford's Center for Research on Economic Development and Policy Reform. Krueger's past positions include president of the American Economic Association and vice president of the World Bank.

In 1983, the family of Ernest Sturc established the Sturc Memorial Lecture in international economic relations as a tribute to his life and character. Sturc, for many years as a senior official at the International Monetary Fund, was widely admired and respected for his efforts to achieve peace and progress through international cooperation.
