The School of Economics teaches you to formulate problem-solving approaches to concrete policy issues found at the intersection between economics and governance. It aims to develop professionals who are able to analyse and address policy problems broadly, and in the field of social policy and market regulation specifically. The focal point is on welfare states and markets. You learn about the role of government in creating, facilitating and controlling markets. You also examine the status of the current welfare state, such as the pension system, social security, labour markets, and income distribution in society ; and the challenges the welfare state currently faces.
Our focus is on people who want to take responsibility for shaping our society, both now and in the future. People who want to play a role in solving important social issues. This is why our faculty is fully integrated in society – for example, through national and international cooperation with government, the business sector, social organisations and academic institutes.
For students seeking a postgraduate economics education we offer a Master of Science in Economics with specializations m Monetary Economics and Development Economics.
