  • A course on Applied Econometrics further teaches students about analysis, discussing a powerful analytical tool and its applications: the regression model.
  • Markets and Organisations provides a deeper look into the foundations of organisations.

Second semester

  • Power and Authority in Organisations studies the allocation of authority, looking at the extent of centralisation, acquisition and dissemination of knowledge, as well as the motives behind it.
  • The rest of the time is spent on the Master's thesis with a research seminar to prepare for and guide the process.
