The main research fields of faculty members include game theory, contract theory, monetary and international macroeconomics, labor economics, finance and experimental economics.

The international relevance of researchers at the Department of Economics is confirmed by a large number of prices and awards and the successful acquisition of third-party funds, e.g.  DFG Collaborative Research Centers.

The Department of Economics pays special attention to the development and support of young researchers. It offers outstanding graduate education based on international standards and encourages junior researchers to engage in research activities focused on publications in international journals.
