Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
The objective of the course is to develop knowledge of students at the level of Intermediate Macroeconomics. The course focuses on real economy analysis using short-term as well as long-term equilibrium models of the main stream economics. The course explains determinants of macroeconomic equilibrium applying the models of closed and open economy. The course also deals with the analysis and interpretation of macroeconomic policy impacts. The course aims at developing students' abilities to link and apply various theoretical approaches to real issues of contemporary economic development.
Learning activities and teaching methods:
The course ends with an exam. The exam is written and optionally oral. The written part has the character of test and short supplementary questions. The condition for passing the exam is to gain at least 50% of possible points, but the condition for successful completion of the course is to gain at least 60% of points in the sum. The scoring scale is governed by faculty regulations. The final grade is given by the sum of points from the credit and from the written part of the exam. A student who has met the conditions for completing the course has the opportunity to request an oral examination.
The student may take the final exam if he/she has passed the preliminary tests. To pass the test the student must obtain at least 50% points from two written papers, which are written during the semester mainly from the content of exercises. At the same time, it is necessary to obtain at least 40% of the possible points from each individual written work. In case of failure, it is possible to pass the preliminary test in a comprehensive correction term, from which it is necessary to get at least 50% points.
The part-time students end the course only with an exam, in which it is necessary to obtain at least 60% of points.
