Welcome to the Department of Economics!

When the Johannes Kepler University Linz was founded in 1965, economics was established as one of the core subjects of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Economics. Since then, the Department of Economics has become an important center of theoretical and empirical research in Austria. At the same time our department is closely integrated into an international network of researchers.

Teaching in our department is geared towards the training of highly qualified economists as well as the imparting of economic knowledge to students from other disciplines.
