Department of Business and Economics

The Department of Business and Economics is a department under the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences. The department has locations in Odense, Sønderborg, Kolding and Slagelse. Jan Guldager Jørgensen is the Head of Department.

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 activities at the department are organized within six groups:

The department’s teaching activities are also organized in the four groups mentioned above. We educate candidates for public as well as private businesses and have a strong tradition for high-quality teaching that incorporates pedagogical tools and IT. The teaching takes place in Odense, Slagelse and Sønderborg, where the department’s core programmes are Economics, Mathematics-Economics, Business Economics, European Studies and MMA (Market and Management Anthropology).

Talent programme
The department offers a talent programme for present and future graduate students. The purpose is to give ambitious and talented students in one of the MSc programmes in economics or mathematics-economics the opportunity to strenghten their competences and acquire additional qualifications through special initiatives.

The department wishes to strengthen its competences through collaboration with public and private organizations nationally as well as internationally through the unit OECONOMIA  Analysis. The unit offers research-based consultancy in the form of economic analyses.
