Learning outcomes

On completing the course, the student is able to:

Knowledge and understanding:

  • conduct autonomous work using a scientific approach based on theories, methods and considerations that are central to economics
  • use macroeconomic models when analysing problems of national income, unemployment, inflation and exchange rates and when analysing long-term growth
  • describe exogenous and endogenous growth
  • describe how market pricing occurs and the role of the market system in the allocation of social resources
  • explain and use the concepts of collective goods, external effects and asymmetric information and display a good ability to use these concepts in economic analysis
  • describe the assumptions made in the classical regression model.
  • conduct statistical hypothesis testing
  • use economic theory to interpret the results of regression analyses
Skills and ability:
  • formulate an economics problem
  • apply theories and scientific methods used in economics to analyse economic problems - present the results of autonomous work and complete its written presentation in the set timeframe
  • apply macroeconomic models to analyse monetary and financial policy, consumption, investments and money, and the open economy
  • apply exogenous and endogenous growth theories - analyse consumer choices in conditions of certainty and uncertainty
  • conduct an advanced analysis of microeconomic problems - specify a regression model that allows testing for the occurrence of a link between economic variables
  • conduct regression analyses with the help of statistical software
Values and approach:

  • critically review scholarly work, partly based on theory and methodology and partly on the statistics used
  • display in-depth insight into the role of economics in social development and the responsibility associated with using economic tools
  • make autonomous and critical approaches to problems in social-economics - evaluate ethical aspects of economics research
