The large school, which covers a broad range of contents and methods, is given structure and profile by its centres. They cluster numerous research and teaching activities of the individual chairs and institutes, and act as expert centres, research clusters and internal coordinators of the courses offered. The Marketing, Accounting, Finance and Management centres are complemented by the Center for Applied Research in Economics, the Center for Quantitative Economics, the Center for Economic Theory, the Center for Information Systems and the Center for Interdisciplinary Economics. One of the school’s characteristics is the close interaction and project-oriented cooperation of the centres’ researchers. Across the centres, applied problem solving approaches are developed and examined in theoretical and empirical projects. In addition to focussing on theoretical research, many application-oriented research projects are also secured for evidence-based implementation. The school, thus, is appreciated as a cooperation partner in economy, politics and administration.
