Description of exams and course work
In the exam (moodle test) students should demonstrate their ability to adequately interpret the microeconomic concepts and apply the methods worked on in class, in limited time and without aid. By means of multiple-choice-questions, which are either embedded in a context/case/scenario or require prior computation, students' capacity to apply the learned solution strategies to new settings and draw correct economic implications is assessed.
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
