The Adam Smith School of Economics and Finance at Glasgow University continues a prominent academic and professional record which dates back to the academically acclaimed father of economics, Adam Smith (1723–1790). Serving as Professor of Moral Philosophy, he published a series of seminal works such as The Theory of Moral Sentiments, The Wealth of Nations and Lectures on Jurisprudence; the culmination of which set a foundational precedent for classical economic theory 300 years after the university's inception in 1451.

The School's illustrious historical reputation in academia maintains to the modern day and remains in the forefront of academic research in international finance, international economics, macroeconomics
