Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Monetary Integration
Theory of Optimum Currency Areas
Exchange rate strategies, crises and interventions
Monetary policy in normal and crisis times
Fiscal policy and the sovereign debt crisis

Assessment and permitted materials

To pass the lecture course you need a minimum of 21 out of a total of 40 points:
- 19 points: final exam (90 minutes, closed book exam)
- 16 points: active participation during the course
- 5 points: newspaper research on a given topic (announced at the end of the
first lecture block)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The university course (UK, lecture with exam) and the seminar (SE) are designed as
a package, so that on each course day the content of the lecture is rounded up by
corresponding group works and presentations. I therefore recommend taking both
courses. It is, however, also possible to register just for either the UK or the SE.
(4 ECTS each).
