University of Sussex ranked in global top 50 for business and economics
The University of Sussex has been ranked among the world's top 50 universities for Business and Economics in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2018.
Sussex is now ranked 50th in the THE 2018 global subject ranking for business and economics, climbing 19 places from 69th in last year's ranking.
The new table puts the University into the top 50 for Business and Economics for the first time. Sussex also retains its UK top 10 standing for the same subject from last year.
Professor Steven McGuire, Head of the School of Business, Management and Economics, commented:
"Our new position in this ranking reflects the continued hard work of our School community and builds on our existing reputation for excellent rates of graduate employment and our strong international outlook.
“Our leading research is also a key factor in this success. The School addresses problems of major social and economic importance - environmental sustainability, economic inequality and the role of the state in promoting economic growth, for example - and these attract major funding and have high impact.
"We will continue to listen to our students in the coming year and beyond to identify areas for further improvement.
"This is a fantastic achievement, and one of which the School and wider University can feel immensely proud."
The subject ranking follows a recent rise for the University as a whole, which is now positioned at 147th worldwide.
