Bachelor's programme Economics, Law and Social Sciences – Economics concentration

Course Details

In the major and minor field of study, you will analyse economic processes from various theoretical perspectives. You will examine organisations and households as participants and designers of market processes that trigger intended and unintended consequences of economic activity.

From different perspectives you will develop an understanding of the functioning of decentralised economies. You will explore how private and public organisations function and change and how their activities influence the economic process.

A central theme is also the possibilities and limits of correcting undesirable developments through institutional regulations and economic policy interventions.
