Inhalt The Seminar in Economics is designed to give students basic insights into current research in economics. The seminar is offered jointly by faculty from different fields in economics to allow participants to study one topic in one of these fields in depth while learning from the other presentations what problems or issues are being discussed in current research in other fields. Students are allowed to choose which field they would like to write their paper in by selecting a supervisor. In the spriing term 2024 the supervisors are Sarah Lein (Macroeconomics), Yvan Lengwiler (Banking, Finance, Growth) and Georg Nöldeke (Microeconomics Theory, Matching and Market Design). Sarah Lein will not be available as a supervisor in the fall term 2024.


27.2.2024: In an initial session during the first week of the spring semester, we will hold an information session explaining our expectations for the papers and the presentations. Topics will be selected through bilateral discussion with the respective supervisors. Please contact your supervisor to discuss this in more detail.

22.03.2024: In a second session, the students present their preliminary outline and approach and receive feedback (this is a pure feedback session and will not be graded).

17.05.2024: Students present their seminar papers, which are to be handed in by 06.05.2024.
Lernziele This seminar is designed to enable students to read and understand current research, as well as summarize it in their own words, and to present and explain their assigned paper to other students.
Literatur Will be discussed bilaterally with supervisors.
