Department of Microeconomics is in charge of the realization of courses that provide students with basic knowledge in microeconomic theory that helps them understand target functions and ways of behaviour of key actors of market economy – consumers, producers and the state. By a clear differentiation of individual market structures – perfect competition, oligopoly, monopolistic competition and monopoly – students get an insight into the ways in which an entrepreneurship can make maximum profit in various business conditions.
The Department puts a special emphasis on modern theories that explain microeconomic aspects of making business decisions in the conditions of strategic interaction among market participants. The Department aims to explain to students the ways and methods that the state uses in order to regulate natural monopolies, as well as the role of the state in the realization of environment protection measures through the analysis of external effects on various market structures.
The basic goal is to enable the students to practically apply the acquired knowledge in their work in enterprises and to make that knowledge a basis for understanding and making business decisions regarding costs, competitive advantages, demand, prices, entering and leaving the industrial branch, as well as the requirements of agencies that regulate the work of these enterprises. The aim is to make students ready to use microeconomic analysis as a means for solving a wide spectre of problems that enterprises comes upon in their everyday work.
