Economics

What will you learn?

The Economics study programme offers a way for students to obtain knowledge in the area of economic theory in terms of its development, its alternative forms, and the substance of its argumentation. Moreover, this knowledge is combined with mastering the basics of quantitative tools and techniques used both in economics and in other scientific disciplines. Students are introduced gradually to the basics of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and the history of economic thought. They can be deeply informed in the areas of applied mathematics, statistics, and econometric modelling. The aim is to prepare professionals able to solve theoretical and applied economic problems, experts possessing the ability to think analytically based on mastering the techniques of theoretical economics and understanding of the relevance and limits of their use.

Practical training

Practical training is not an obligatory part of the study plan.

Career opportunities

Mastering economic ways of thinking and general-purpose quantitative methods opens the door for graduates into the world of economy, finance, business economics, and applied economic policy. Students may profile their specialization within the appropriate choice of thesis topic and the supervisor. The graduates are well prepared for the labour market, especially after finishing the Master’s degree study programme. Specific knowledge and analytical skills predispose graduates for work on simpler applications in the analytical departments of commercial banks, analytical and consulting firms, and government and international organizations where they can participate in working with quantitative models for financial and macroeconomic forecasts, the impact of alternative testing strategies and scenarios, and creating simpler financial and macroeconomic analysis.
