Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement

The Research Unit for International Economics stands for research and teaching with an international focus in the field of economics at RWTH Aachen University.

In both areas we strive for excellent performance and motivate both our colleagues as well as our students to support us in reaching our goals. In the area of teaching, we use not only classical forms of lectures but also innovative concepts, which are assisted by several e-learning facilities. Regular training of our staff ensures that our teaching methods are frequently reviewed regarding their quality and adapted to recent didactic standards.

In our research we cooperate with different international partners to cope with the global issues of today's international economy and to enable our staff to do research in international and interdisciplinary teams.
