Academic career

Born in Warsaw, he graduated from the SGH (then known as Szkola Glowna Planowania i Statystyki) in 1977 with a Master's degree, and was awarded a doctorate in econometrics in 1981, when he became a full-time member of the school's faculty. In 1988 Rocki has attained habilitation in economics. He served as Vice-Rector of SGH from 1990 to 1996, and as Dean of the Diploma Studium (the unit responsible for master's level studies) from 1996 to 1999. He was elected Rector of the SGH for two consecutive terms - the maximum allowed - in total from 1999 to 2005. After that, he was elected the Dean of Collegium of Economic Analysis, a unit of the SGH grouping scientists specializing in quantitative methods. He is a Professor of the SGH, as opposed to professor as an independent (state-awarded) academic distinction.

In the 1980s and 1990s he was also a lecturer at the Warsaw's Collegium Civitas and the Bialystok branch of the Warsaw University.
