Lernergebnisse und erworbene Kompetenzen

Students have a command of the theoretical foundations of economic policy making. They are able to present and discuss economic policy concepts arising from micro-, macro-, institutional, and welfare economic theories. They are familiar with the goals and carriers of economic policy, organizational forms of social action, theoretical modelling of will-forming and decision-making processes in democracy, concepts of stability policy, instruments of monetary and fiscal policy, causes and effects of structural change, and fundamentals of labour market policy.  Students can detect and asses economic trends based on the appropriate indicators, evaluate fiscal, monetary as well as labor market policies.
Accompanying tutorials enable students to work independently and self-managed. They have improved their presentation skills such as presenting in a compelling manner, receiving and handling immediate feedback from the instructor and fellow students.
