Mis­sion State­ment

The In­sti­tute for Mac­roe­co­nom­ics is an eco­nom­ics in­sti­tute deal­ing mainly with eco­nomic policy, mac­roe­co­nom­ics and pub­lic fin­ance. In­ter­na­tion­ally re­cog­nised re­search in these fields is one of the In­sti­tute’s main pri­or­it­ies, as demon­strated by the nu­mer­ous books and pa­pers in na­tional and in­ter­na­tional journ­als as well as re­search co­oper­a­tions in Aus­tria and abroad.

Re­search and teach­ing form an in­teg­ral part of the In­sti­tute’s activ­it­ies. Since a ma­jor­ity of stu­dents gradu­at­ing from the WU ob­tain em­ploy­ment at large private or pub­lic in­sti­tu­tions, we con­sider it of vi­tal im­port­ance to fa­mil­i­ar­ize them with the­or­et­ical, em­pir­ical and in­sti­tu­tional know­ledge about Aus­trian and European eco­nomic policy. It is very im­port­ant to us to work closely to­gether with our stu­dents.

The In­sti­tute of­fers nu­mer­ous in­tro­duct­ory courses in eco­nom­ics and courses from all the In­sti­tute’s main re­search areas.
