Economics ranked 2nd in the Good University Guide 2022

The Department is proud to announce that Economics at Warwick has been ranked 2nd out of 74 departments in the specialist subject table for Economics in the Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.

The Good University Guide, published annually by the Times and the Sunday Times at the start of the academic year, provides British university rankings based on five categories: teaching quality, student experience, research quality, entry points and graduate prospects. We are particularly pleased to see Economics at Warwick achieving a high score of 95 per cent for graduate prospects and a total score of 98 per cent placing us 2nd behind the London School of Economics.

This latest news follows on from our success earlier in the year in The Complete University Guide 2022 league table where we were ranked 3rd and in The Guardian’s best UK Universities 2022 table we were placed 6th. In the QS World University Rankings for Economics and Econometrics we are currently ranked 25th.

Professor Jeremy Smith, Head of Department of Economics, said:

“I am delighted to see that we have been recognised again for the top quality of our research and teaching and particularly for preparing our students very well for the job market. It is particularly pleasing to note this recognition in the times when we have had to work extremely hard to maintain the high quality of teaching despite the challenges placed upon us due to the pandemic.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and students of the Department for their dedication and hard work which have contributed to this success.”

As the Good University Guide 2022 has also recognised the University of Warwick the University of the Year for Teaching Quality and a runner-up for University of the Year, we are joining in celebrating with the University another significant success.
