Research Groups

Business Analysis and Decisions Group-BADEG

Business Analysis and Decisions Group – BADEG@UoI

BADEG (Business Analysis and Decisions Group) is a multi-disciplinary research group within the Department of Economics at the University of Ioannina.

BADEG aims at bridging the research outcomes and state-of-art knowledge in business economics and finance with the real economy’s and firms’ needs in a constantly changing environment.

Its research activities focus mainly on three interrelated streams, namely:

  1. Data Analysis
  2. Business and Finance
  3. Entrepreneurship

BADEG applies a series of techniques to analyze business processes, model business decisions and support business decision making. Algorithms are designed, developed and applied and tools are built for the efficient allocation of resources and optimal delivery of production outcomes. Data driven methods are applied for knowledge extraction.

Within the same framework, the research activities of BADEG explore the factors which shape the financial decisions of economic units operating in globally integrated markets. BADEG also investigates the areas where financial accounting and management help in decision making for risk assessment, investment, and strategic planning.

Finally, BADEG utilizes both market and data analysis to provide business advice for existing and new firms. New business models are developed and strategic advice is offered incorporating innovation as a key element for successful market presence.
