Goals and content
The elective modules for monetary economics provide basic and advanced knowledge in the areas of monetary theory and policy. Besides theoretical considerations the modules place particular emphasis on the discussion of practical topics. This enables students to establish a connection between theory and empirical evidence.
Since the elective modules cover both practical and academic areas, there are numerous career opportunities for graduates. These include jobs at banks, insurance companies, industrial enterprises, government agencies, research institutes and the European System of Central Banks.
Bachelor students in Economics (PO 2010) can choose the elective modules „Monetary Economics I (lecture monetary policy)“ and „Monetary Economics II (seminar)“.
