The course provides a "model" of a regional economy by defining the mechanisms underlying the "demand side" and the "supply side" of the economy and exploring how these interact to shape economic activity rates in the short run as well as more complex adjustments and their impacts, such as on competitiveness and trade.
Requirements for acceptance to courses are generally the same as for acceptance to the master’s program in whole, i.e. that applicants have completed undergraduate studies, regardless of whether BA, BSc, BEd, or other equivalent study.
The master’s committee may decide to accept undergraduate students, who are a long way into their studies, to individual courses. All applications for entry to individual courses must be reviewed by the Master’s program committee and a decision can take up to two weeks.
It is important for applicants to have a good knowledge of English, as all teaching takes place in English.
