Welcome to the Department of Economics
We are a highly international and research-oriented Department. More than 30 full-time junior and senior professors together with numerous PhD students form a community dedicated to studying all aspects of economics. Throughout its history, the Department has hosted eminent economists such as Menger, Wieser, Böhm-Bawerk and later Schumpeter and Hayek. We believe that science prospers in an open intellectual climate and in a fruitful dialogue between theory and empirics.
