The department has a strong tradition for high-quality research within the fields of economics and business. The research covers both theoretical and empirical subjects, but the use of economic theory and quantitative methods, such as mathematics, statistics, econometrics and computer science, characterizes most research projects.
The research and teaching activities at the department are organized within four groups:
- Accounting and Finance
- Econometrics and Management Science
- Macroeconomics, International Economics and Economic History
