Research profile Economics

The individual institutes and chairs with their multitude of projects and research cooperations constitute, within the scope of their focuses, the centre of economics research at the University of Münster School of Business & Economics.

There is a broad spectrum of areas of specialisation: they range from finance and sports economics to international economic relations, quantitative economic history, monetary economics and the theory and empiricism of international financial markets to the cooperative system, traffic economics, energy economics as well as settlement and housing. The researchers not only publish regularly in leading international journals, they also do commissioned research funded by third parties, they are present in the media, and are members of the most important advisory bodies in scientific policy advice.

It is an integral part of all activities of the chairs to promote junior researchers. Research results are regularly presented and discussed in various research seminars.

Visitors of the faculty provide an insight into current research results of other locations.
