- Course objectives
- The goal of the course is to teach students intermediate microeconomic theory. The course provides students with the knowledge necessary for further studies of microeconomics on the doctoral level.
- Learning outcomes
- After completing the course the students will be able to:
- apply the theory of consumer, in particular they will be able to find optimum choices of consumers and derive demand functions for different preferences;
- understand the basic properties of demand;
- determine the effects of a price change on consumers’ welfare;
- apply the model of a firm;
- explain the interaction between consumers and firms in competitive and imperfectly competitive markets, in particular in monopolistically competitive market, in a monopoly and an oligopoly;
- describe the concept of general equilibrium;
- apply the basic concepts of consumer theory to situations under uncertainty and explain the main problems related to asymmetric information.

- Assessment methods
- Final exam: written test. Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam (credit test) by awarding grade "F" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
