The Department of Economics produces research in all economics issues, and specifically applied work which is relevant to businesses and governments. The department offers highly qualified education within an extensive number of full‐time and part‐time programs available at Copenhagen Business School, including a structured PhD program. The department also comprises four research centres: Centre for Economic and Business Research (CEBR), Centre for Owner‐Managed Businesses (COMB), Pension Research Centre (PeRCent) and Centre for Innovation.

The Copenhagen Education Network (CEN) is a group of economic researchers interested in education. The purpose is to provide a venue for economists focusing on education in their research, to present research papers and exchange ideas. Read more about CEN here.
