v To provide students with a firm grounding in the analytic methods of microeconomic theory used by economists working in research, government, and business.
v To introduce beginning graduate students to the core analytical material which they will need in order to read the modern Microeconomics literature and to proceed to advanced work in applied microeconomics.
v To enable students to master the material presented in the various MA option courses.
v To bring the students to the point where they are ready to use their microeconomics at a research level.
2. MACROECONOMİC THEORY
This course aims at discussing the current controverseries among various schools of macroeconomic thought in a highly technical and analytical manner. It includes the following topics: Methodological issues and visions of the macroeconomic analysis, Keynes versus the "old" classical model, the orthodox Keynesian school, the orthodox monetarist school, the new classical school, and the new Keynesian school.
3. INTERMEDİATE ECONOMETRİCS
This course applies mathematical techniques to problems in economics. Emphasis is on application rather than computational methods of mathematical rigor. The problems of acquiring, measuring and using economic data are examined.
4. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH METHODS
The basic rules of expository writing, how to read and write an academic article, how to make a plan and draw an outline, how to reach the sources and make a research, how to form footnotes, endnotes, reference lists ,tables, and numbering equations, how to arrange the sections, chapters. In short, how to write a master thesis.
5. EUROPEAN INTEGRATION
This course mainly consists of two parts. In the first part, various forms of economic integration, Customs Union Theory and its implications, static and dynamic effects of customs unions are studied. In the second part, the theory of monetary integration and costs and benefits of monetary unions are analysed. Throughout the course a historical analysis of European Union (EU) is discussed, and relevant topics such as EU's institutions and management, founding treaties of the EU and their implications, European Monetary System and ,its problems, stages toward the Economic and Monetary Union, common policies, the enlargement process, and Turkey-EU relations are emphasized.
6. GAME THEORY
The main purpose of this course is to enable the student to set up and solve games, especially games that arise in business and economics. Setting up a game requires considerable modelling skills, as well as the ability to implement a certain format, the form of game. We try to develop both sets of skills with frequent applications and examples of set-ups that have proved their value in the research. It will be discussed four classes of games: static games of complete information, dynamic games of complete information, static games of incomplete information, and dynamic games of incomplete information. Corresponding to these four classes of games will be four notions of equilibrium in games: Nash equilibrium, sub-game-perfect Nash Equilibrium, Bayesian equilibrium, and perfect Bayesian equilibrium.
7. DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS
Models, theories and strategies related with the economic development are examined. Discussions and implementations since 1950s are considered. A special emphasis is given to the role of state and IMF and other institutions in economic development. Aims: v To give students a broad grasp of economic understanding of uneven patterns of growth and development.
v To give students an understanding of structural features that are typical of less development countries.
v To give students an understanding of policies that can be applied in less developed countries and how to measure that effectiveness .
8. PURE THEORY OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE
This course aims at providing the student with the tools of analysis common to international trade theory. Topics covered include the production function, the box-diagram, factor intensity and factor abundance, factor proportions, factor prices and commodity prices.
9. ADVENCED MICROECONOMICS
v To introduce the basic analytical tools that are necessary to conduct research in any field in economics.
v To give the students a full understanding of the classic Microeconomic Theory and of the modern developments of Microeconomic Theory.
v To enable students to address a microeconomic problem by structuring it as a mathematical model and to obtain useful economic predictions through the use of mathematical tools.
10. OPEN ECONOMY MACROECONOMICS
This course consists of three parts. The open economy in the long run, the open economy in the short run, and the new open economy macroeconomics. In the first part, macroeconomic features of a small open economy, exchange rates and macroeconomic features of a large open economy are discussed. In the second part, the Mundell-Fleming model under fixed and floating exchange rate regimes, exchange rate models and overshooting and interest rate differentials and exchange rate policies are covered. In the last part, the new approaches to small open economy macroeconomics with particular reference to intertemporal dynamic models are analyzed.
11. APPLIED ECONOMETRICS
v Choosing the appropriate model
o The consequences and detection of errors of spesification
o Data mining
v Handling non-stationary time series
o Stationary and non-stationary stochastic processes
o Non-stationary variables and the classical model
o Error correction models
o Testing for stationary
v Co-integration and the estimation of error correction models
o Co-integration between two variables
o Statistical tests for stationarity
o Deterministic versus stochastic trends
Current macroeconomic events and policies will be discussed. The topics covered is subject to change each year.
v To develop students' knowledge of selected current economic issues of policy relevance.
v To expose students to high level economic practitioners in government, international organizations and the private sector, and to give students insight into the formulation of economic advice and economic policy.
v To prepare students for careers in economic advising and policy formulation.
13. ENDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATION
Industrial organization is concerned with the use of formal economic analysis in studying competition between firms and the evolution of market structure. Over the past decade, this has been one of the most exciting areas of the economics, as a new generation of game-theoretic models have provided us with new ways of analysing a range of practical issues and of addressing some long-standing empirical questions. The course covers theoretical and empirical work dealing with structure, behavior, and performance of firms and markets. Topics include the organisation of the firm, monopoly, price discrimination, oligopoly, monopolistic competition, product selection, research and development and advertising. The course also focuses on public policy issues in industrial organisation including topics in antitrust policy, economic and social regulation, deregulation and privatisation.
14. INTERNATIONAL FINANCE
This course aims at covering various aspects of an open economy such as income adjustment, the role of the exchange rate, wage determination and competitiveness in an open economy, the addition of non-traded goods.
v PROGRAMIN AMAÇ KAPSAM VE TARİHÇESİ
İngilizce İktisat Yüksek Lisans programı, 2001 yılında İktisat Fakültesi İngilizce İktisat Bölümü lisans programının devamı olarak kurulmuştur. Program, tezli bir yüksek lisans programıdır. Programın amacı, yüksek lisans öğrencilerine hem teorik hem de kantitatif iktisat konularında güçlü bir temel oluşturmaktır. İngilizce İktisat Yüksek Lisans programı, bu yönüyle öğrencilerin iktisatta ve diğer sosyal bilim dallarında daha ileri çalışmalar yaparak doktora derecesi almalarına imkân veren bir ara aşama olarak düşünülmüştür. Programda, öğrencilerin iktisadın muhtelif alanlarında uzmanlaşmaları için önemli ölçüde esneklik sağlanmaktadır. Ana derslere ilave olarak, öğrenciler her dönem bir seçimlik ders almak zorundadırlar. Programa kabul koşulları, İstanbul Üniversitesi Sosyal Bilimler Enstitüsü tarafından belirlenmektedir. Öğrenciler ve akademik işlerle ilgili tüm idari prosedür, İstanbul Üniversitesi'nin Lisansüstü Eğitim ve Öğretim Yönetmeliğine uygun olarak yürütülmektedir.
v MEZUNİYET SONRASI ÇALIŞMA ALANLARI
İngilizce İktisat Anabilim Dalı yüksek lisans programını bitiren öğrencilerin mezuniyet sonrası ilk çalışma alanı olarak akademik kariyer düşünülmektedir. Bunun dışında öğrenciler ülkemizde ve yurtdışında kamu ve özel sektör kuruluşlarında, denetim firmalarında, bankalarda, aracı kurumlarda araştırma uzmanı, uzman yardımcısı, ve müfettiş yardımcısı pozisyonlarında iş bulabilmektedir.
