Quality and Impact

On the following pages you will find evidence of the scientific quality and societal impact of the research that is conducted at the School of Business and Economics (SBE).

Our mission is to do Science with Purpose. We enable our staff to push forward the boundaries of scientific knowledge and to aim for the highest quality theoretical and empirical research contributions, leading to publications in top international journals. Our research is closely aligned to all degree programmes offered by SBE in the fields of Economics and Business Administration, substantiating our claim to provide our students with the best research-led teaching and education. High-quality research is also key to our ambition to provide impact on policies and practices at firms, government and society in general.

In line with this overall mission statement, research at SBE is organised in two research institutes, the Tinbergen Institute (TI) and the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (ABRI). These institutes create research capacity through PhD training in Economics and Business Administration and provide an environment conducive to high-quality research. In the ABRI, SBE collaborates with the University of Amsterdam, and in the TI with both the University of Amsterdam and Erasmus University Rotterdam.
