This is applied course in macroeconomics, which focuses on contemporary issues and developments in global economy. The main aim of this course is to learn how to identify and analyse myriad factors affecting economic activity in both short and long term. Another important dimension of this course is the analysis of the reflexive relationship between macroeconomic developments, economic policy (both fiscal and monetary) and financial markets (asset prices).
The Research Methodology course offers an advanced curriculum aimed at equipping students with a diverse range of research methods. These encompass classical approaches like statistical testing, regression analysis, and forecasting, as well as more advanced methodologies such as ARCH, GARCH, counterfactual analysis, and survival analysis. Furthermore, students are introduced to the dynamic realms of data mining and machine learning, gaining proficiency in supervised and unsupervised learning techniques, including classification, clustering, dimension reduction, and text mining. As a result, graduates of this course are well-prepared to engage in research endeavours, both in academic and business settings, employing a rich toolbox of classical and cutting-edge research methods.
The Economics of sustainability is exceptional due to its interdisciplinary nature and real-world relevance. It equips students with a holistic understanding of sustainable development by integrating economics, environmental science, and social sciences. This module emphasizes long-term value creation, major theoretical models, empirical challenges, and potential solutions. It also opens up opportunities for a career in sustainable finance. By bridging the gap between finance and sustainability, students learn to incorporate sustainability issues and concerns into their daily work, making it a unique and valuable component of their education.
