European Economic Integration and Economic Policy
As the Czech Republic becomes more and more intertwined with the European Union, we shift our concern from narrow, one-country approaches to economic policy to a more comprehensive, international approach with a strong European flavour. The European Economic Integration and Economic Policy major aims at combining modern and advanced theoretical concepts of European economic integration with more empirical approach. The major is tailored for students aiming at a career in an international or national economic policy authorities (central banks, the European Commission, the World Bank, the IMF or OECD). Students will be expected to muster strong analytical skills, independent and innovative thinking and robust quantitative methods.
The European Economic Integration and Economic Policy is one of the applied economics major at the IES FSV UK. The core of the major lies in the required courses. There are seven Institute-wide required courses that all students must pass (advanced macro and microeconomics, econometrics, economic theories and European economic policies). In addition, eight courses are required for the major. These are concerned mostly with the European issues (EM029, EM081), economic policy in an open economy framework (EM050, EM111) and with particular structural economic policies (labour market, regulatory framework, public finance and public choice). Students then have a wide choice of elective courses that must complete their credit history to the total required number of credits of 120.
