Economics ranked 25th in the QS World University Rankings 2021

We are delighted to announce that for the second year Warwick’s Department of Economics has been ranked 25th in the 2021 edition of the QS World University Ranking for Economics and Econometrics, published on 3 March 2021.

We have been placed in the top 5 of the UK based Universities after LSE, Oxford, Cambridge and UCL. The rankings, compiled by global higher education analysts QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) examined over 14,000 individual university programmes, taken by students at 1,452 universities across the world.

Commenting on the news, Professor Jeremy Smith, Head of Department of Economics, said:

“I am very pleased to hear the news which shows that the Department has been consistently achieving high rankings in subject league tables. This is a great achievement for us all as it recognises the hard work, passion and dedication of our staff and students. I would like to thank them all for their contribution to this collective success.

I would also like to add that, despite a very challenging year, we have been able to adapt successfully to a blended approach to teaching and learning. We will be continuing to develop strengths in research and teaching, attracting high calibre students and staff to the Department.”
