Research with impact
Making a difference by expanding our intellectual footprint
We seek to address global challenges through relevant research-based education in which we, together with the private and public sectors, explore how to make the world a better place. We are a research-driven business school with a long history of research projects on socio-economic, financial and environmental sustainability, as well as ethics and corporate social responsibility.
As part of one of the largest universities if Scandinavia, the School of Economics and Management dates back centuries. Our roots provide us with a solid academic foundation and we see that our work makes a difference. Our expertise enables us to look ahead and see the big picture. Our researchers are active in several academic disciplines; business administration, economics, economic history, business law, informatics and statistics. They often work in an interdisciplinary manner and conduct specific research that theorises practical dilemmas aiming to create better conditions for a sustainable society.
Research impact case studies
We try to ascertain the underlying causes of poverty and find measures to counteract it, we solve problems with the distribution of resources, and point out the need for legislation and policies that keep up with the times. Our researchers devote themselves to acute analyses of broad correlations and issues of profound complexity, tackling specific problems of significant impact for all our stakeholders.
These case studies show how the work of our researchers makes a real difference to economies, businesses, and communities.
