The Department of Economics and Business Economics is characterised by its Economics+ profile, which implies that in addition to the core of economics, our research and teaching also takes on board theories of related fields such as political science, psychology and sociology.

Within the first theme, sustainability is a central topic of the Global Data Lab, which develops instruments for monitoring and analysing the status and progress of societies (see link below).
