Research and Programs

Our faculty has structured the department to have strong coverage in five areas: Applied Microeconomics, Econometrics, Economic Theory, Finance, and Macroeconomics. By focusing on these five core areas, particularly at the graduate level, the department offers a unique, specific educational experience. Aside from traditional coursework, research and special lectures, the department holds three weekly seminars to encourage collaboration and communication within these five disciplines. The seminars attract top scholars from throughout the world to discuss their work and also provide a forum for faculty and students to present their recent research.
