In the Master's Degree Program Economics offered by the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, various specialization areas are available for studies. Among them is the specialization area in Quantitative Macroeconomics.
This specialization area includes a variety of macroeconomic topics including business cycles, economic growth, monetary economics, trade, and others. All courses have a quantitative focus aiming to enable students to understand current research papers. To achieve this, some courses contain sections or exercise sessions dealing with quantitative methods, while others focus completely on learning empirical or computational methods that are then hands-on applied to macroeconomic research questions in PC tutorials. Through this, students shall be enabled to conduct their own quantitative analyses, e.g. in their Master's thesis.
