Teaching results:
The aim of the course is to introduce the students to the principles of macroeconomics and functioning of the economy as a whole. The students will be able to understand the basic macroeconomic indicators and the mutual interactions between them. The students learn how the macroeconomic equilibrium is being formed and what are the causes and consequences of macroeconomic disequilibrium. The course focuses on the economic role of the state, macroeconomic policies, the basic models of a closed and open economy and the international economic relations.
Completion of the course enables students to master the basic macroeconomic concepts and understand macroeconomic context. The students will be able to systematize the knowledge of macroeconomics in relation to the courses such as economic policy, public finance, social policy and public administration.
The students will gain the ability to think like the economist and understand macroeconomic concepts, indicators, policies and issues and apply knowledge of macroeconomics to events in the economy.

The students get the ability to search, process and analyze macroeconomic data gained from relevant resources and evaluate macroeconomic development. In tutorial, students are expected to work not only individually but also in teams. The students learn how to discuss and present their arguments.
