Depending on the size of the group, we may switch to full distance mode or rotation mode (i.e. the attendance time of the course is divided between two or more student groups so that the lecturer holds all units, but changing student groups are present in the classroom).

Introduction to central approaches of growth theory (Solow model, endogenous growth theory).
After taking the course students will be able to understand the basics of theoretical approaches to economic growth (neoclassical growth theory and endogenous growth theory) and apply them in context.
You may miss up to two meetings.
The course has two parts.
The first part is a set of lectures (approximately 9 units; supported by a set of slides available in the learning center a couple of days before the meetings), complemented by a group assignment (homework). In this group assignment, students solve sample exam questions, further develop some theoretical arguments and have the chance to work empirically. This part ends with an exam.
In the second part (approximately 3 units) students prepare and present a term paper in groups.
Exam: 60 points
Assignment: 20 points
Presentation: 20 points
A positive grade requires a minimum of 30 points on the exam and a minimum of 50 points overall.
After the registration period, students from the waiting list, who don't yet have a valid registration, will be assigned to available places in the specific courses. This allotment is not based on a first-come first-served principle. Rather, progress in the studies will be the decisive criterion.
Solid background in theoretical concepts of "Grundlagen VW" (that is, economics 101), applied microeconomics and international macroeconomics.
After our meetings or or by appointment (contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org).
