The Department of Economics

  • Economics at Warwick was ranked 1st in the UK in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015, while the Complete University Guide 2016 placed us 2nd across all UK institutions. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) we were ranked 2nd in the UK for our percentage of 4* and 3* research, with 96% or our research deemed world leading and internationally excellent.
  • We have 65 full-time faculty staff available to supervise PhD students and teach our Master’s programmes, including some of the best known and most original academics in the field. Our collegiate approach extends from our dedicated Department-based postgraduate common rooms and computer laboratories to a full event programme, which includes postgraduate parties, PhD conferences, and academic seminars and lectures.
  • Four major research centres and the Warwick Policy Lab make our Department an international centre for collaborative Economics research. These centres put us at the heart of debates on competitive advantage in the global economy, decision research, economic theory and applied research.
Graduate destinations include:

Lecturer in Economics, University of Nottingham; Economists, Bank of England, Bank of Japan; Consultant, Centre for Economic and Business Research; Adviser, Permanent Mission of Norway to the United Nations; Research Analyst, Singapore Civil Service.
