Department of Economics
Our aim is excellence in research and teaching. We have a strong research portfolio, well-respected undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, and an increasing number of PhD students.
The Department is home to two research centres: the Centre for Competition and Regulatory Policy and the City Health Economics Centre.
We have 16 full-time staff and 6 part-time lecturers, as well as visiting professors and research fellows.
We have developed a wide-ranging but focused research programme, with an emphasis on rigorous economic and econometric modelling. Our research covers development economics, econometrics, financial economics, health, history of economic thought, industrial economics and organisation, microeconomics and economic theory, macroeconomics and international economics, public economics and public finance.
The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise judged the Department's research as "internationally recognised" or better, with 10 per cent described as "world leading".
