Research in Economics
and Technology

Expanding and questioning state of the art economical and technological concepts is at the forefront of the scientific activities of the Faculty of Economics and of the Faculty of Technology. 

We are committed to add value to the academic discussion and contribute in the development of business concepts and technological advantages. Our close cooperation with partner companies and worldwide scientists makes it possible to analyze trends in theory and practice and to check their relevance. 


This not only affects research but also has a direct influence on the practical orientation of teaching and PhD-thesis at E.H.E. Our goal is to provide the fundament for creative and responsible Executives and Doctorates , who not only know answers to questions - but also independently generate questions that, in turn, question economic activity. This is achieved primarily through reflection and broadening the horizons.

The research work of the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of  Technology is positioned towards an economically, ecologically and socially sustainable and responsible way of doing business. In addition, we collaborate internationally in interdisciplinary research fields beyond traditional faculty boundaries. This is reflected in our research and subject areas with the focus:
