Founded in 1460, the University of Basel is the oldest university in Switzerland. The Faculty of Business and Economics was established in 1995 and is the second youngest of the overall seven faculties at the University of Basel. However, the subject of economics has already been taught for almost 150 years in Basel.
Research-based teaching: The Faculty of Business and Economics aims to integrate the fields of Business and Economics, thereby offering students a unique curriculum in Switzerland. Based on the academic experience and in light of future career opportunities for our alumni, we are convinced that this is a winning combination.
Research is a fundamental part of every university. Without research there is no development and no innovation. Without excellent research performance, teaching will not remain exciting, and the dialog with business and industrial partners lacks input. The faculty maintains a high position in research, both on a national and international level, especially given its size and financial resources.

Research Centers and National Centers of Competence in Research
Due to the increasingly interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of research, networking beyond department and faculty boundaries is becoming increasingly important. Centers of Excellence exist at the university level to bring about the appropriate structures for these topically oriented networks and promote a fruitful exchange of ideas. In addition, researchers participate in numerous national initiatives involving topic-oriented, cooperative research. Some of these are anchored to the University of Basel as the main site while others are marked by significant participation on the part of researchers from the University of Basel.
The Competence Center for Research in Energy, Society and Transition - CREST contributes to the energy transition in Switzerland by providing detailed, evidence-based recommendations on policies that help to reduce energy demand, foster innovation, and increase the share of renewables in a cost-efficient way.
