Economics (B.A.)

Studying Economics at Schmalkalden University

How do global financial and economic crisis arise? Which consequences do they have for the job market? How will the tax revenue develop? What can be done to overcome crisis and return to sustainable growth? Will there be an inflation? Although there are a lot of opinions regarding these questions, their answers often lack expertise. In the study programme Economics you will learn by means of models how macro-economic indicators like unemployment, inflation or exchange rates work (macro economy).

Yet you will also discover models that explain the behaviour of businesses and households by which you can evaluate the development of single economic sectors or market structures (micro economy). In your elective subjects you will also examine specific questions regarding micro and macro economy in detail. For example: How come the middle Neckar valley is more attractive for the automobile industry than Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania? Or: How reasonable is the economic promotion of clusters?
