Teaching at the Chair for Macroeconomics

Schreiben an der Tafel

Teaching is very important to us at the Chair for Macroceonomics. We give the students of the WFI deep insights into economic contexts - be it in our thematically colorful basic course "Introduction to Economics", or in our various elective (compulsory) subjects. Especially in the electives we combine exciting topics such as innovations, financial decisions or educational issues with modern methods from behavioural economics or applied research.
