Chair Prof. Dr. Binswanger

Johannes Binswanger holds the Chair for Business Economics and Public Policy – with a special focus on executive education. We thank Dr. Josef Ackermann for generous initial funding of the Chair.

Our chair is responsible for courses on economics, as well as on data literacy, data science, and critical thinking in the Executive MBA program of our university. Our research focuses on: (1) the formation of expectations by economic agents about (macro-)economic variables and their relationships; (2) the dynamics of economic (sub-)systems which are not fully understood by the involved agents themselves. Furthermore, we are committed to strengthening the role of data literacy and critical thinking in high schools. For this purpose, we have developed the data application DataSight, among other things. Johannes Binswanger is the Managing Director of the SIAW Institute.
