Nottingham’s School of Economics celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. It is highly regarded and established as one of the best economics schools in the world. The School of Economics was established in 2010 at Malaysia and in 2011 in the Ningbo Campus in China, confirming our position as truly global.
The School of Economics has an enviable reputation and a strong commitment to teaching and research of the highest quality. We consistently rank amongst the top 10 in the UK’s higher education league tables and were awarded top marks by the UK Quality Assurance Agency for our teaching quality. The quality of our research is nationally and internationally recognised. We ranked third for research power in the latest UK Research Assessment Exercise and were placed 32nd in the world, eighth in Europe and fourth in the UK in the prestigious Tilburg University Top 100 Worldwide Economics Schools Research Ranking.
Research in economics
As one of the premier economics departments for research we enjoy an international reputation for research and scholarship of the highest quality. The School promotes an active research environment which fosters collaborative research links, both within and external to the University.
In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), the School was ranked 3rd in the UK, behind only Oxford and Warwick, on the ‘research power’ measure – which takes into account both quality of research and the number of researchactive staff who were returned in the RAE. On the ‘grade point average’ measure we were ranked sixth in the UK.
