Tilburg University Economics Ranking

Another University Ranking You Didn’t Know You Needed

Bit of a one for the anoraks this, and certainly one of which I was, until very recently, unaware. It is, as the title suggests, a ranking of Economics departments, namely the Tilburg University Economics Ranking. It’s a pretty straightforward methodology too – they have identified a list of 36 leading journals in the fields of Econometrics, Economics and Finance and have ranked economics schools based on publications in these journals for the last five-year time period. And the results are as follows (with changes to rankings in brackets):

1. HARVARD UNIVERSITY

2. UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO

3. NEW YORK UNIVERSITY

4. UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY

5. COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

6. [+1]STANFORD UNIVERSITY

7. [-1] MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

8. [+2] YALE UNIVERSITY

9. [-1] NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY

10. [-1] UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA

11. [-1] LSE

12. [+2] UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN

13. UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES

14. PRINCETON UNIVERSITY

15. DUKE UNIVERSITY

16. [+3] UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO

17. [+1] UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD

18. [-2] UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND

19. [-2] CORNELL UNIVERSITY

20. [+6] UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA

And just for domestic interest the other UK placings in the Top 50 are:

22. [+3] UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON

32. [+3] UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM

36. [+9] UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

41. LONDON BUSINESS SCHOOL

48. [-2] UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

Fascinating, huh?
