See here for the syllabus including topics.


This seminar regularly takes place in the winter and the summer term and is taught entirely in English.

The seminar features varying topics in digital economics, i.e. it discusses different economic implications of digitization. It thereby typically takes perspectives from the fields of microeconomics, behavioral economics, finance, and data science.

The seminar is regularly co-taught by Economics PhDs currently active outside the university. The idea of this feature is to provide students with perspectives on the applicability of Economics outside of (pure) academia and providing a different angle on the different topics discussed in the seminar.

Typically, groups of students jointly work together on a topic, write a joint seminar paper, and also hold a joint seminar presentation.
