Department of Economics and Management

The department evolved from the Faculty of Economics and Trade, which was founded in Trento in 1973. It brings together the two former departments of Economics (DECO) and Computer Science and Business Studies (DISA).

Research at the DEM covers a wide range of sectors in the economics and management area and its members adopt different perspectives that include theoretical and experimental research, quantitative and experimental methods, case-study analysis and computer simulations.

The department is home to a multidisciplinary research environment where researchers apply a vast array of different approaches to investigate:

  • Business ethics, social enterprises and social innovation
  • Decision making and economic choices
  • Financial markets and economic activity
  • Firm behaviour, strategic management and organization
  • Household and labour economics
  • Institutions, norms and economic policies
  • Tourism, Environment, Sustainable Business and Consumption

Research work takes place in groups that work together in a vast network of national and international collaborations, which ensure that the department regularly hosts visiting researchers and scholars from abroad, organizes seminars, workshops and conferences, and contributes to the dissemination of scientific knowledge.
