Abstract

This study ranks the top 20 European economics departments on the basis of five prestigious awards won/held by these departments’ current faculty: the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, the Yrjö Jahnsson Award, the European Economic Association’s Presidency, the European Economic Association’s Alfred Marshall/Joseph Schumpeter Lecturers and the European Economic Association’s Hicks-Tinbergen Medal. Based on our methodology, the London School of Economics is the top economics department in Europe. Rounding out the top three European economics departments are the University of Bonn and the University of Cambridge, respectively.
