Department of Economics

The Department of Economics is one of the strongest departments in economic research in Europe. In international rankings, the department has occupied top positions for several years. With our research, we provide impulses for central societal challenges - such as climate change, digitalization and social justice - and contribute to a sustainable and evidence-based economic policy. Our focus is on the education of young economists. In courses ranging from Bachelor's to PhD programs, students in Bonn learn at the highest scientific level and at the cutting edge of research. Our graduates find challenging and exciting jobs in politics, business, international organizations and associations, many of them in leadership positions.
