Summary

The aim of the course is both to deepen the knowledge gained in the study of microeconomics, macroeconomics and international economics at the master's level, as well as to expand problem areas by topics normally included in the study at the doctoral level. In contrast to the subjects of the follow-up master's study, the theoretical component of teaching is significantly strengthened and the interpretation of the issue is based mainly on mathematically formulated models and advanced graphics apparatus.
