Welcome to the Chair of Economic Growth and Economic Business Cycles! We help students get fundamental insight into processes of economic growth and macroeconomic fluctuations. For this purpose, we use both theoretic as well as empiric analyses. By participating in our courses, you will acquire sound knowledge on common macroeconomic models and on econometric methods. We show you how one can apply this knowledge to issues relevant in economic policy and which conclusions can be drawn for key decisions in important policy areas – ranging from the cohesion of the European Union to the creation of circumstances allowing economic growth in underdeveloped states.
