Economic Seminars

Here you can find information about the elective module "Economics Seminar", BW37 in the Bachelor and MW86 in the Master. To pass the module, it is necessary to attend a total of two seminars. However, this can be done in different semesters. In the courses you will be asked to prepare a written paper and present it in a colloquium.

The registration for the courses is done via the HIS-LSF. If you are taking the second seminar of the module, it is important that you register for examination for the module via the student portal during the registration period. Your grade can only be entered if you have registered for the examination performance. If you are only taking the first seminar, this is not necessary.

After completion of both seminars and upon successful registration in the student portal, your two grades will be added together and an average will be calculated. The overall grade will be communicated to the examination office by the responsible staff and not by the lecturers of the individual seminars. Please note that the grades will only be entered at the end of the semester, i.e. as soon as the grades from all seminars of the semester are available.

Note to students of the Economics Master degree: For MQV10 “Economics Seminar 2“, you can choose from all MW86 seminars. If they are in German, you can still participate by doing the examination (presentation, paper) in English.

Please contact  in case you have any questions regarding the course.
