Department of Economics

Currently the full-time academic staff of the department includes 21 professors, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Frank Verboven. The research covers a wide range of areas in the broadly defined field of economics. 

Researchers have built up considerable expertise in their fields, producing fundamental and policy-oriented research that finds an outlet in top general and specialized journals. The department also participates in many European, national and regional research projects. Professors are often called upon by national and international policy makers to give scientific advice. The Department of Economics attracts international guest professors as well as research assistants.
