Department of Economics

How are economic decisions made, and what are the consequences of these decisions? How should competing firms make pricing and investment decisions?

By addressing these questions the Department of economics aims to understand major global challenges such as climate change, economic instability and growth, economic development and national and global welfare and inequality.

The Department is built around a number of internationally renowned research groups in a wide range of fields, providing high quality research and teaching in economics. 

The faculty members constitute an enthusiastic group of women and men who delivers important contributions, both to the international research community, the government, and the public debate.
