Nijmegen School of Management

enables students, institutions and companies, societal actors and governments to play their part in the transformation towards a sustainable society. In doing so, the faculty is committed to Radboud University's mission of contributing to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. 

In the context of our mission, which is called 'Responsible governance for sustainable societies', we address scientific and societal challenges from a good governance perspective. Our work focuses on the topics Beyond Economy, Climate, Inclusivity, Safety, and Democracy. By building, questioning and extending the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), we acknowledge their interrelatedness and focus on a number of grand challenges within society. We contribute to innovation and sustainable growth in areas where topics such as inequality, gender, decent work and poverty are being addressed. We also address environmental and climate challenges, for which we seek solutions.

At the Nijmegen School of Management, academic research and teaching are carried out in challenging educational programmes. These programmes are offered in Business Administration, Economics and Business Economics, Geography, Planning and Environment, Political Science and Public Administration. Academic research takes place within the Institute for Management Research (IMR). Research is carried out within the above mentioned domains and in interdisciplinary research groups: the Hot Spots. Around 5,000 students study at the Nijmegen School of Management, and the faculty has around 350 FTE staff.

The vacancy is within the chair Economic Theory and Economic Policy. The Department of Economics and Business Economics has three additional chairs: Business Economics, International Economics, and Financial Economics. The department is responsible for the development and quality of the Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Economics and Business Economics and the courses in Economics in the other educational programmes of the Nijmegen School of Management. What sets the Nijmegen curriculum in Economics apart is that it is characterised by a multidisciplinary approach whereby inspiration is sought from other areas in addition to the economics discipline.
