The main objective of the seminar is to teach students how to write an MA Thesis in English. The potential thesis topics vary every year depending on the interests of students. Students are free to choose any topic related to international economics (both micro or macro) which has an international dimension. For example, the thesis can be devoted to a particular foreign country or it can cover a cross section of different countries. Previous thesis topics were related to economic growth, foreign direct investment and international trade as well as the effects of various trade and macroeconomic policies. The main requirement for the course is completion of the thesis in due time. The course is mainly designed for the second year students of the MA Program in International Economics. However, students from other programs can also join subject to the approval of the course coordinator.
The course consists of two parts offered in two semesters of the second year of the MA program.
