The Department of Economics was established in 1983 as a consequence of the union between the institute of economics at the faculty of economics and the institute of economics at the faculty of political sciences. It is currently the largest department of economics in Italy and their members actively contribute to research and scientific debate, both nationally and internationally.

In the Tilburg University Economics Ranking 2012-2016, the Department ranks as the 81st department in the world, 28th in Europe and 2nd in Italy in terms of the publications of their faculty in top-five rated journals. RePEc ranks our Department as n. 3/322 in Italy and n. 33/3456 in Europe. In 2018, it has been financed by the Italian Ministry of University and Research under the program “Departments of Excellence” for 2018-2022.
