The Faculty’s staff is regularly involved in both theory-oriented and applied economic research. As for theory-oriented research, the nationally and internationally outstanding studies are the ones focusing on international economics, finance or management. As for applied economic research, the most notable studies have a focus on, among others, economic policies or human resource economics.
