The Department


“Economics is the issue of our times. This context underscores the importance of our mission: to conduct research that improves economic well-being, and to educate the next generation of leaders of business, government, and academic inquiry.”

- Professor Abhinay Muthoo, former Head of the Warwick Economics Department

Warwick is home to the renowned Warwick Economics Department, which is one of the most successful departments of its kind in the United Kingdom in terms of academics and student satisfaction.

The department consistently ranks within the top five nationwide across a variety of respected university guides and specialist subject tables for Economics in The Times and The Sunday Times University League Tables.

As of 2018, the Department encompasses approximately 1,200 undergraduates with roughly 330 postgraduates and an academic staff of 86, making it one of the largest at Warwick. It is also host to four research centres that host engaging projects relevant to the understanding of today’s world. These include the Warwick Economics Research Institute, the Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy, the Centre for Research in Economic Theory and its Applications and Decision Research at Warwick. It has received over £7.6 million in research grants and contracts over the past five years.

We are proud to be endorsed by such an accomplished department that supports the Summit greatly through a wide range of means and without whose unwavering support the Summit would not be possible.

9 News: Continued success for the Department


We would like to extend our congratulations to the graduating class of 2018 from the Department and wish them all the best for the future after their graduation in July. As with the whole department, the class of 2018 has worked incredibly hard to achieve such results and we are proud to see the results of such efforts. Of course, this would not have been possible without the incredibly teaching, excellent student experience and high quality research that the Department provides year on year.

In addition to the great results achieved by the graduating class of 2018, we are also proud to see that the Department continues to be ranked incredibly highly in official university rankings. In particular, we are delighted to see that the Department has been ranked 4th in The Times and Sunday Times University League Table for Economics and 3rd in the Complete University Guide 2017 which combines rankings of both teaching and research, reflecting the consistent and high-quality work that the Department produces.
