The Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences understands itself to be part of an excellent research and teaching university. For years, it has conducted highly successful research in various topics and with many different theoretical-methodological approaches, providing a solid scientific education. The subjects regularly reach the top spots in relevant research rankings.
In 2015, the total amount of external funds procured was around 5.4 million euros, a considerable amount that continually grows and is based on a broad number of researchers and funding institutions. The Faculty includes a vibrant mix of individual research and large projects, local and international cooperation, and excellent theoretical and applied research. With the new appointments of professors, this potential was strengthened with a long-term perspective, and existing concentrations were expanded.
