Doctoral education programme

The research subject Industrial Economics and Organisation (IEO) covers all organisational and economic conditions that concern industrial activities, in particular those that involve technology and technological expertise being realised industrially by manufacturing and service-producing organisations in both the public and private sectors. The subject is thus a broad one and has historically been one of the basic subjects at faculties of technology.

Many of our doctoral students are and have been associated to the Swedish Research School of Management and Information Technology.

Director of IEO studies: Anette Hallin
