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.
Attendance is compulsory if teaching takes place on campus. In case of the asynchronous distance lecture, lecturecasts are provided and attendance in the meetings is not compulsory.
The course is composed of two parts.
The first part is a set of lectures complemented by three group assignments (homework). In the group assignments, students revise the basics in economics, solve sample exam questions, and collect data for a country study. This part ends with a written exam.
In the second part (approximately 3 units) students prepare and present a term paper (group work).
