The School of Economics and Management has 106 full-time employees, among which 90 are faculty members. It has a student body of roughly 2400 (including undergraduate, Master's, and Ph.D. students). The school has four academic departments: economics, business administration, accounting, and agricultural and forest economics. The school grants degrees range from Ph.D., Master's in Economics, MBA, MPAcc, to various undergraduate majors and minors offered by the four departments.
