Chair of Microeconomics (VWL)


The Chair of Microeconomics headed by Prof. Dr. Thomas Kittsteiner offers courses in the fields of microeconomics, game theory and behavioral research. These are primarily aimed at bachelor and master students of economics and industrial engineering.


Research interests in the microeconomics group are focused on applied game theory, experimental economics and behavioral economics. We are particularly interested in research topics related to market design such as the design of auctions or matching markets. We offer infrastructure for running economic experiments and are able to provide financial support for research-related expenses.
