Evidence of Esteem
1. Kalaitzidakis et al. ranking of European Economics Departments
(European Economic Review 1999, p1150-1168),
In this survey, London Guildhall’s performance among qualifying UK Departments was very commendable, especially in view of the need to overcome poor research tradition and ad hoc research funding in post 1992 Universities. Based on aggregating the separate entries for City of London Polytechnic and London Guildhall, the Department was ranked 30th among qualifying UK Departments. This placed it ahead of many established departments based on various measures of the total number of pages published in top journals by an institution. Per-capita rankings would have put us substantially higher given that our number of active researchers is but a fraction of the number of many of the higher ranked institutions. It should be noted that this survey covered a period before the Department's increasing emphasis on research.
