The Faculty of Economics is committed to the idea of the unity of research and teaching thus we strive to reach high academic standards in both these fields.
On the one hand the quality of our research is shown though our international high-ranking publications whilst on the other hand partaking in practical and solution-oriented studies. These reports are also requested by external clients, such as private companies or government departments. Methodically and thematically we cover a wide spectrum with the faculties core research focus being the Faculty of Applied Empirical Research on entrepreneurship and policy-relevant questions.
