About Economics and Finance at University of Portsmouth

Overview

If you're ready to take your expertise in Economics into a postgraduate research degree, Portsmouth is the perfect place to realise your ambitions. Our Economics research covers resource economics and environmental policy, monetary policy, behavioural and experimental economics, efficiency, productivity, and digital economy.

Economics affects almost every area of our lives, from individual financial decision-making, to global macroeconomic and monetary policy decisions made by governments around the world.

In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, we've used mathematical models and econometric methods to predict how the economy reacts to such events – and how we can prevent them happening again. Our work has helped governments develop more effective monetary policies and better regulate the use of natural resources.

In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), 100% of our research in the area of Business and Management Studies, which includes Economics, was ranked as delivering either outstanding or very considerable impact – and when you join us as a postgraduate research student, you'll make your own contribution to our exceptional work.
