Geoff Harcourt Visiting Professorship

The Geoff Harcourt Visiting Professorship will annually invite a global leader in a field of economics to share their knowledge and experience not only with economic and business students and staff but also with the business community.

Geoff Harcourt is a person who makes an impression — whether as a distinguished academic, a gregarious storyteller, or an influential teacher. He is an influential member of the School of Economics with a lasting impact upon his students and colleagues. His contribution to the University is celebrated through the Geoff Harcourt Visiting Professorship.

Each year the School of Economics invites a global leader in a field of economics to be the Geoff Harcourt Visiting Professor. During the period of appointment the Professor shares their knowledge and experience in a public lecture and in meetings with alumni, students, staff and the business community.
