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 was a person who made an impression — whether as a distinguished academic, a gregarious storyteller, or an influential teacher. He was an influential member of the (then) 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.  Sadly, Geoff passed away in December 2021.

Each year the School of Economics and Public Policy 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.
