More information



Program description:
Answering theoretical and practical questions related to the operation of the economy has necessitated increasingly complex approaches in the past decades. Exploring the most important socio-economic problems of our times and providing support to meet all challenges require solutions that presuppose the adoption of knowledge acquired in other fields of science. The science of economics is capable of developing fruitful relations with numerous sciences. Throughout the development of the research and training structure of the PhD programme, the teaching researchers and institute employees of the Faculty strived to find the most important topics related to fields of sciences that could constitute a starting point for providing answers to current economic issues in the centre of general interest. Research Programmes: Economic Policy Research Programme, Regional Economic Development Research Programme.
