The professors in the Department of Economics come from all over the world and have studied abroad in the best economics departments. With this global background comes an open, welcoming outlook on the world. Each year, we welcome many international students in our programs, and we encourage local students to complete a part of their education abroad. This unique opportunity prepares students to live new cultural experiences and to overcome the challenges of an increasingly global economy.

For local students interested in spending a semester abroad, there are also many opportunities. Flexible inter-university programs as well as programs arranged on a case-by-case basis with more than 440 universities make studying abroad a very real possibility. Furthermore, the university also offers study-abroad grants to defray some of the costs associated with a semester abroad. Information for Study abroad funding
