PhD Krzysztof Zięba
The aim of the module is to provide students with the contemporary knowledge about the economic environment of modern business.
The main objective is to help students to understand the mechanism of modern market economy, to use theoretical concepts in practise, and to understand the importance of global trends for business. This brief and compact module uses a variety of teaching techniques, including classroom experiments. Economic literacy test questions are used for self-assessment of students’ progress (pre-test and post-test).
