“The Art and Science of Microeconomic Modeling” course is intended for Ph.D. and advanced M.A. students, and is held in English. The participation requirements are well-developed mathematical skills and fluency in English. Passing the two-week intensive course is equivalent to gaining 30 hours of an elective course (International Economics students) or 30 hours of an “economics extension” (‘rozszerzenie ekonomii’) course (students of programs taught in Polish). For Quantitative Finance students, the course will be credited as an additional course. M.A. students accorded the highest grade in the exam of the course increase their chances of a successful application for Ph.D. studies at the Faculty of Economic Sciences, and of writing a Ph.D. thesis under the supervision of Professor Stark. Registration for the course will be via USOS, starting on January 12, 2017 (according to the Faculty’s registration schedule).
