Macroeconomics

Degree program: BSc Business Administration

Macroeconomics is not only the most traditional, but also the most prominent field of Economics. In contrast to microeconomics where the decision making of single firms or households is analyzed, the focus is on aggregate variables like the gross domestic product, interest rates, employment, or economic growth. By using many real-world examples, the course attempts to link macroeconomic model thinking to actual challenges like the global financial crisis, quantitative easing, public debt or productivity slowdown.
