At the University of Tampere, studies in Economics offer two possibilities of orientation: general economics and public economics.

The choice of general economics offers specialization in finance, labour economics and econometrics.

These fields provide a diversity of expertise. Students acquire general skills which are useful in the analysis and solution of economic problems. For this very reason, economics is a particularly popular minor subject in the university as a whole. Graduates typically find themselves as experts in private enterprises and in civil service, e.g. in banks, insurance companies, other financial institutions, firms involved in foreign trade or international enterprise, research institutes, international organizations and public administration both in Finland and abroad.

Research priorities: monetary economics, money and banking, corporate finance and taxation, trade policy, exchange rate policy, open economy macroeconomics, dynamics of labour markets, productivity and wages, structural development, endogenous growth, disequilibrium growth, direct investments, social security, economics of education and learning by doing, optimal taxation, migration and taxation, applied econometrics of financial markets and options, tests for unit roots and cointegration, etc.
