Summary

Cílem předmětu je jednak prohloubení znalostí načerpaných při studiu mikroekonomie, makroekonomie a mezinárodní ekonomie na magisterské úrovni, jednak rozšíření problémových okruhů o témata standardně zařazovaná do studia na doktorské úrovni. Oproti předmětům navazujícího magisterského studia je výrazně posílena teoretická složka výuky a výklad problematiky je založen zejména na matematicky formulovaných modelech a pokročilém grafickém aparátu
