Research profile Economics
In the area of economic research there is a broad spectrum of areas of specialisation at the School of Business and Economics: 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.
The research activities in the field of economics are organised in two centres:
Center for Applied Research in Economics
The research projects of the Center for Applied Research in Economics Münster (CAWM) cover a broad range of economics issues, focusing on traffic and regional economics, housing economics, cooperative management, finance, energy economics as well as the economic situation and the labour market. Within the scope of extensive research funded by third parties, the CAWM continuously provides theoretically and empirically sound analyses for ministries, enterprises, foundations and associations.
Center for Quantitative Economics
The research of the Center for Quantitative Economics (CQE) focuses on a large variety of theoretical and quantitative problems from economics. These include, among others, the areas of “international economic relations”, “monetary economics”, “theory and empiricism of international financial markets” and the development of econometric methods for financial markets.
