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 2019, 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 centers 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. In less than 50 years since its founding, the department has rocketed to the forefront of both economic research and education in the UK and beyond.
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.
NEWS: CONTINUED SUCCESS FOR THE DEPARTMENT.
We would like to extend our congratulations to the graduating class of 2019 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 2019 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 2019, 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 1st in the Good University Guide 2020, published by the Times and Sunday Times in September 2019. We are particularly pleased to see Economics at Warwick achieving a top score of 92.8% for graduate prospects.
