For (prospective) students
The University of Graz offers a bachelor, a master, and doctoral program in economics.
Economics is probably the most versatile of the social sciences. This can be seen in the variety of problems that are tackled and the variety of methods that are used in economics. Problems range from relative small ones such as "How do people decide what to buy in a supermarket?" to big ones such as "What determines whether a country will be rich or poor?" To get a rough idea of the range of problems tackled in economics you can browse the JEL codes. This is a rough classification system for economic research. To find information about the economic research questions that researchers at the University of Graz address, see Economics in Graz. A variety of information in video form can be found here.
