The IK “Market Economy and Government Activities“ is an accompanying course to the KS of the same name. The aim of the course is to deepen the understanding of some topics treated in the KS. Students are thus encouraged to attend the IK in parallel to (or shortly after) the KS, as the IK builds on concepts taught in the KS.
The IK (3 ECTS/2 hours) will be held weekly over the entire semester. Information on the schedule (including the date of the exam) as well as course material will be provided online at KUSSS.
Active participation in class is mandatory. Students are expected to prepare at least 60% of the questions of a problem set, containing about 18 questions / problems. Students have to present and discuss these problems in class.
The IK ends with a written examination. Students have to obtain at least 50% of all points at the exam and have to prepare at least 60% of the questions of the problem set to pass this course. The grade is the weighted average of the results on the exam (70%), the number of problems solved (25%) and participation in class (5%).
