Course Content

Students will obtain sufficient knowledge on all issues mentioned in the course description. They will know how the concepts and tools of microeconomic analysis can be used and extended in the study of regional and urban development.

They will be able to analyze economic phenomena and views related to peripheries, interregional relationships, rural areas and the cities, the regional development and inequality. They will develop critical thinking for the examination of policies aiming at regional development and convergence. As a prerequisite, they will learn the causes and symptoms of regional economic phenomena and the logic behind different regional policies.

They will know and understand the use of indices and quantitative methods in regional economic analysis. They will have, in combination with the rest of their coursework, a very good background and perhaps an incentive to pursue further studies in regional science, economics, and development.
