Department of Economics

The Department of Economics at Nottingham Business School offers a distinctive range of courses, applicable research and opportunities to engage in collaborative activities with a wide variety of organisations. It consists of a large international team of scholars and practitioners from diverse backgrounds in industry, professional practice and academia.

Both our undergraduate and postgraduate courses offer students a challenging and vibrant environment to gain an in-depth understanding of economic concepts, principles and techniques.

As a department, we can draw upon the expertise of the Economic Strategy Research Bureau (ESRB). This is uniquely placed to combine proven practitioner expertise with academic excellence. ESRB members contribute directly to our undergraduate and postgraduate portfolio at all levels, enabling our graduates to obtain an economic toolkit that is attractive to potential employers.
