The Center for Quantitative Economics (CQE) at the University of Münster was founded in 2008. The research foci of the members of CQE address a variety of theoretical and quantitative questions in the field of economics. These include the areas of international economics, monetary economics, quantitative aspects of economic history, the theory and empirics of international financial markets, and the development of econometric methods for financial markets. The research of the CQE is internationally oriented, and members strive for publication in highly ranked scientific journals. CQE professors also instruct students in international research standards as well as in economic theory and economic policy. In this way, students acquire a valuable scientific education that encompasses all aspects of modern economics.
