Economics uses facts and logic to increase our understanding of a wide variety of social issues such as globalisation, economic growth, income distribution, competition policy, the role
of the state in the economy, unemployment, poverty, and the role of financial markets. Economics can be studied as a major, a minor or as an independent course. Economists work in the private sector
(e.g. banking and finance), central government agencies (Treasury, central bank), local government agencies, branch- and employer organisations, trade union confederations, mass media, and in
international organization such as the EU, IMF, UN OECD and the World Bank. The department offers a broad selection of courses by active researchers from the basic to the doctoral level.
