Department of Economics
The Department of Economics offers Bachelor's, Master's and PhD degrees in Economics.
The study programmes in economics are structured to ensure internationally comparable qualifications and a lifelong human capital. The programmes are particularly strong in the areas of International Economics, Financial Economics, and Applied Microeconomics.
The department is located in the Economicum building together with the Economics units of the University of Helsinki and the Swedish School of Economics; and the Government Institute for Economic Research (VATT). This location enables close cooperation between the units in teaching as well as in research. Helsinki Center of Economic Research (HECER) coordinates this cooperation.
Our professors and researchers participate actively in the general discussion on economic, political and social issues. The Head of the Department is Professor Juuso Välimäki.
