Chair of Economics and Finance

The lion’s share of research conducted in the Chair of Economics and Finance concentrates on monitoring the vacancy market through online job offers, improving methods of that analysis and deepening both cyclical and structural dimensions of the analysis. With that data, we continue the process of improving the method for monitoring skills mismatch in the labour market at a detailed level. The Chair also contributes to research on non-extensive entropy econometrics for high-frequency series, productivity spillover effects from Foreign Direct Investments located in Poland, and – last but not least – methods for forecasting the stock market and currency exchange market, including cryptocurrencies.
