Winter Semester 2020/21 Courses at the Department of Economics

Due to the uncertain and dynamic nature of the current situation, we are not able to estimate what the state of things will be in a few months. At the moment many of the regular winter semester courses (lectures & tutorials) are expected to take place online and smaller courses/seminars might take place in person. However, this is subject to change, depending on the further development of the situation.

If traveling to Munich is not be possible for you, you may take part in those courses offered online at the Department of Economics as a virtual exchange student while staying in your home country.

The lecture period in the winter semester is expected to start in the first week of November and end mid-February. Examination period is expected to end at the end of February.
