School of Economics

Welcome to the School of Economics

Based in one of the UK's leading universities, the School of Economics is among the best in the country. We combine excellence and innovation in teaching with an international reputation for high-quality topical research.

Our courses combine all the core analytical and quantitative techniques required by modern economics graduates and are taught by academics who are pushing forward the boundaries of the subject.

We are proud of our high rankings across league tables including being the top economics school in the Russell Group in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2018.

Economics students share their reasons for choosing the University of Nottingham.

Ranked 9th in the UK for economics in The Complete University Guide 2020
Top 40 in the world consistently in the Tilburg University Economics Ranking
Top 35 worldwide and 6th in the UK (the latest IDEAS RePEc rankings)
Recently recruited academic staff members in the school: We are delighted that Mikhail Safronov joined the school this year, from Northwestern University; and that Adam Spencer joined us too, from Wisconsin.
