Department of Economics

The Department of Economics conducts cutting-edge research, teaching, and knowledge exchange in the core areas of economics, i.e. microeconomics, macroeconomics, and quantitative methods. The department is especially active in business-related economic research and hosts three cross-disciplinary research centres: Centre for Owner‐Managed Businesses (COMB), Pension Research Centre (PeRCent), and Centre for Innovation. We offer high quality education within an extensive number of full-time and part-time programs, including a structured PhD program.
