Seminar
Beschreibung:
The aim of the seminar is that students use their competences and knowledge from previous courses on International Economics to make a first step towards bridging the gap between their master studies and their own independent research. The seminar incentivizes students to go beyond the mere understanding of a scientific paper. Critical evaluation as well as own suggestions on how to improve or extend the analysis should be part of the term paper and the presentation.

The list of papers presented in the “Literature” section provides an indication for potential topics. Suggestions by students are welcome and will be evaluated thoroughly.
