School of Business, Economics and Law at University of Gothenburg

Here you will find research and education with global perspectives and a focus on sustainable development. Research and education at our School have a purpose: To make an impact and thus contribute to the advancement of society at large. This presupposes an active engagement in contemporary societal development and close collaboration with the surrounding society.

The School is accredited by EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. This "Triple Crown" accreditation is valuable proof that education, research and collaborations maintain an internationally high quality, and confirms that we are a strong business school, active in an international arena, continually developing in line with the requirements and changes around us.


Department of Economics, University of Gothenburg

We offer education in economics and statistics and our department conducts research in areas such as environmental, development, behavioral, health and financial economics. We put sustainability high on the agenda as reflected in several of our programs. There are about 125 people working in the Department of Economics and more than 40 of those are PhD candidates working towards a PhD exam in Economics.


The Environmental Economics Unit (EEU) is a large and vibrant research group within the Department. We have a dozen senior researchers studying various aspects of environmental and resource economics with a focus on behavioral and experimental issues as well as on the design of environmental policy instruments, macro-economics and other subjects. We do much of our work in developing countries through the Environment for Development Initiative where most of our former PhD graduates from developing countries are active. We have trained some three dozen PhDs from low income countries and many hundreds in shorter courses. We give courses at all levels from undergraduate through masters and up to the PhD level where we have a particular PhD focused on climate for participants from developing countries.
