Economics is a vibrant, resea­rch and knowledge exchange intensive department within the Strathclyde Business School (SBS), one of four faculties forming the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

As 'the place of useful learning' the University of Strathclyde is committed to the advancement of society through the pursuit of excellence in research, education and external engagement. SBS is rated in the top 10 business schools in the UK for research - and first in Scotland – in the most recent Research Excellence Framework which measures the quality and breadth of research. Our rating was particularly strong in terms how our research impacts on practise.

We are also one of the first business schools in the world to be triple accredited, holding accreditation from the international bodies, AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS and received the THE award for Business School of the Year in 2016. Strathclyde University also received THE awards for University of the Year 2012 and Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2013. 

Within the Department staff have diverse interests, with particular research strengths in Applied Economics and Applied Econometrics. We are home to the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI), Scotland's leading independent economics research institute, with over 40 years of experience in real-world policy analysis.

The Department has an international reputation in CGE modelling of regional economies. The modelling team has secured a number of prestigious research and knowledge exchange grants over the years and we are seeking a junior academic to assist with the development of this work, including helping to secure research income and develop PhD and post-doctoral researchers.

We have a commitment to excellence in teaching and offer a PhD programme in Economics along with a portfolio of specialist taught postgraduate programmes including our distinctive MSc in Applied Economics, aimed at the aspiring professional Economist and our MSc in Global Energy Management. We also contribute to the Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics and run a large undergraduate programme.
