In economics, we study incentives behind and the results of individuals' choices in the society. In microeconomics, we study how the allocation of scarce resources is solved in a market economy under different institutional set-ups. Particular focus is given to the microeconomic tools such as opportunity cost, equilbrium, and the models for consumers' and producers' choices. In macroeconomics, we study how the economy function on a aggregate level. Particular focus is given to long-run economic growth and business cycle fluctations.

In business administration (BA), we study businesses' goals, conditions under which they operate, and managment and analysis tools. Special foucs is placed on strategic management. Topical issues like corporate social responsibility and innovation management are also covered during the course.
