The Department of Economics (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico) at the University of Alicante is a research-oriented center.
The aim of our Department is to consolidate a human team that sustains the highest quality standards both in research and teaching.
We encourage top quality research by providing a modern infrastructure to all faculty and a stimulating environment for interaction. We organize several seminars every week, and we count with the support of the Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Económicas to disseminate our research through its AD series of discussion papers. Our Department is ranked fourth among the Spanish Economics Departments on the basis of research output and is one of the most productive European Departments in per capita terms.
