Department of Economics

The Department of Economics is committed to outstanding research and research-based education at all levels. We are particularly strong in microeconomic theory and empirical microeconomics with a focus on labor and personnel economics, urban and transport economics, energy and environmental economics, as well as competition and innovation economics.

We offer Bachelor's, Master's and PhD degrees in Economics. The study programmes are structured to ensure internationally recognized qualifications and a lifelong human capital.

We are part of Helsinki Graduate School of Economics. Helsinki GSE is a unit for economic research and graduate education that was established in 2018 together with Hanken School of Economics and the University of Helsinki.
