Iconomix is an economics education programme managed by a small team of SNB staff members in Zurich and Lausanne. The core iconomix team comprises six employees (3.3 full-time equivalents, 0.5 of which in a managerial capacity) as well as, on average, two interns.

The team focuses on website operation, programme management, customer support and quality assurance, and works with qualified external experts for all other services. Over time this approach has developed into a well-coordinated and efficient network.
