The Economics Department (Utrecht University School of Economics, U.S.E.) addresses economic issues from a real-world-perspective, meaning a strong awareness of the complex socio-economic reality: human behaviour is not always rational and markets are not always in equilibrium. Institutions are important for understanding economic dynamics and so are the dimensions of time and space. U.S.E. is always looking for connections with other disciplines in research and education. 

Research

The economics research in Utrecht focuses mainly on social themes regarding the future of work, behavioural insights for policy making, entrepreneurship, sustainable finance, and sustainability and economic development. Results of research are made public by our Seminar Series, Discussion Papers and workshops. 

Education

The economics education is English-taught. One third of the students and one fourth of our staff have an international background. U.S.E. offers a broad Bachelor’s programme Economics and Business Economics and several specialized Master’s programmes.
