Industrial Economics and Organisation

Within the research specialisation of Industrial Economics and Organisation, the research is oriented towards the Economic Sciences. Economic Sciences employ 48 researchers and teachers, of whom four are professors.

Economic Sciences focus on research on Industrial Renewal, whereby we mean the act, process, content, and outcome of renewal related to industry, i.e. business and commerce. Radical industrial renewal can often not be successful without changes in the supporting infrastructure that society offers, as well as in institutions and values, and this is why industrial renewal cannot be studied apart from its cultural context.

To clarify the meaning of the concept of Industrial Renewal the unit edited the book: Studies in Industrial Renewal: Coping with Changing Contexts

Economic Sciences employ 48 researchers and teachers, of whom four are professors, have 1150 FTE students and 15 doctoral students. The unit is responsible for teaching at MDH within Accounting and Commercial Law, Marketing, Organisation, Economics, and Political Science. Research programmes and projects often involve researchers from two or more of these areas of research and teaching and also researchers from other universities in Sweden and abroad.

A doctoral education programme is offered through the research subject of Industrial Economics and Management.
