We train You to be an expert of future economics.

Economics examines how individuals and organizations make economic decisions in different situations, and what kind of a whole do the decisions of different operators form. In Economics, we assess the factors and stimuli affecting the decision-making of economic operators as well as the communication between the operators. We also examine the functioning of the markets and both national and global economy. The field of economics has a long history, and the discipline has been taught at the University of Jyväskylä since 1971. In contemporary sciences, economics is located between business economics and social sciences.

We offer high-quality, research-based education for Finnish-speaking students (degree studies in Economics) as well as for international students (Master’s Degree Programme in Banking and International Finance and Doctoral Programme in Economics).
