Welcome to the birthplace of economic thought

Cambridge University has long been lauded for its contributions to economics. Its alumni stretch back years and includes prominent economic thinkers from Alfred Marshall to Amartya Sen. One of the most influential figures in modern economics, John Maynard Keynes was also raised in the city. More recently, a Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences was awarded to a Cambridge Researcher for an analysis of consumption, poverty, and welfare.
