Lectures and Seminars

Lectures (Undergraduate)
During the English-taught class of Global Economy, I present different aspects regarding the world's economy: benefits and costs of free trade, international capital flows and migration, foreign currency markets, financial globalisation; their rationale, occuring changes as well as policy issues. The teaching is based on both theoretical analysis and the real-world examples. The aim of the course is to provide knowledge on basic analytical tools as well as to develop higer interest and better understanding of the issues connected to the global economy and increase the ability of looking at the problems from different perspectives. The second objective of the class is to allow students to gradually develop skills of listening, presenting short information and discussing the topics regarding the global economy in English.
