Economics Seminar

In the summer term 2024, the Institute for Economics once again organizes an Economics Seminar where different speakers from the Faculty of Business and Economics and other institutes present their research. For details, visit https://www.uni-augsburg.de/en/fakultaet/wiwi/economics/economics-seminar/.


The students acquire theoretical and empirical knowledge of methods with persisting useability and learn to utilize this knowledge to solve economic problems.

Solution competence

Our aim is to enable our students to utilize economic models as well as information gathering and evaluation techniques by applying modern empirical methods. The provision of the required skills to systematically analyze complex economic problems on company as well as economy wide level is our priority.

You are free to choose the topics and courses of your studies depending on your interests and skills rather than having to commit to a profession from the very start. Your ability to think in the context of models will be an advantage throughout your whole professional life.
