The Department of Economics, with about 25 full-time faculty​ members actively engaged in research, teaches around 1000 students in programs leading to BA, MA and PhD degrees in economics. 

Undergraduate studies​ in economics can be combined with programs in business administration, accounting, and computer science as well as with other fields in the soc​ial sciences and humanities. Curricula are centered on core sequences in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics, which serve as a basis for a wide selection of advanced courses in specific areas, including public economics, industrial organization, labor economics, game theory, experimental economics, and financial economics. 

The Master's program offers two tracks: a research track that often leads to PhD studies, and a terminal degree leading to a professional career in the public or private sector. Our PhD program provides good preparation for a research or teaching career.

The Department has a high level of research output, and faculty members take an active part in international research networks, policy initiatives, and university administration.​
