Research Centres

The members of our Finance Department cluster their expertise in two different research centres.

Each centre has its own clearly defined area of specialisation and conducts an ongoing expert exchange with representatives of experts from other universities, the financial community and journalists. In their projects, the researchers study current issues in the economy and provide well-founded approaches for the resolution of these issues.
