Macroeconomia (1 º Sem 2019/2020)

EC (Economia) , EMF (Economia Monetária e Financeira)

Macroeconomics is an introduction to the study of advanced macroeconomics. Therefore, students are supposed to know the contents of both introductory-level (e.g. Economics II) and intermediate-level short-run (e.g. Macroeconomics I) macroeconomics. Intermediate-level long-run macroeconomics (e.g. Macroeconomics II) would be a plus, but it is not strictly necessary.
Furthermore, this is a course that intensively uses quantitative methods. Thus, students are supposed to know basic algebra (e.g. Mathematics I), calculus (e.g. Mathematics II), statistics (e.g. Statistics I and Statistics II), and econometrics (e.g. Econometrics).
Finally, we also expect students to know both introductory (e.g. Economics I) and intermediate (e.g. Microeconomics I) microeconomics. If you are a student of either the M.Sc. in Economics or in Monetary and Financial Economics and you did not study these topics, please enroll UECE/REM's Refreshment and Preliminary Courses for M.Sc. and Ph.D. before you start this course. You have also "A Summer Study Guide for New Students of the Master's in Economics and Master's in Monetary and Financial Economics" to help you.
Exchange students (e.g. Erasmus) should not enroll in Macroeconomics (advanced level) if they have never had intermediate-level courses in macroeconomics, microeconomics, and quantitative methods before.
