Economics Autumn Semester In the Autumn Semester, the course "Economics A - Introduction to Economics" is offered. The course consists of two parts: Contact Studies and Independent Studies. Contact Studies In this part of the course, an overview of the different topics of economic research is provided in the lecture. Exercises take place parallel to the lecture and require students to reinforce the introduced theories and apply them to practical problems based on specific tasks. The aim, therefore, is to primarily strengthen your methodological skills. Independent Studies In the independent study part, students will be provided with current case studies that they are expected to use and work with, applying the theories presented in the lecture. The primary goal here is to utilise and strengthen students’ ability and theories to assess practical problems.
