Teaching description

Teaching program is provisional and may be subject to changes

Principles of microeconomics

The aim of the course is to give students a comprehensive view of the effect of taxes on entrepreneurship, investment and growth. Taxes will be studied from two different perspectives: from the Treasury’s perspective, which aims at collecting revenue in an efficient and equitable way, and from the taxpayer’s perspective, which tries to minimize the burden of taxes.

Students will develop a foundation for understanding the effects of taxes on consumers’ and firms’ choices, and for evaluating the ensuing impact on market outcome. They will also be able to understand the basic tax planning strategies both in domestic and international markets.

Traditional lectures

Written exam at the end of the course.

Attending students will also be able to benefit from some supplementary activities carried out in the classroom in which the active contribution of each student will be part of the overall assessment.

 

The aim of the exam is to ascertain the student's degree of knowledge on both empirical and theoretical aspects of the discipline. In particular, following the Dublin descriptors, the exam will assess the degree of assimilation of the contents of the discipline, the ability to make the appropriate connections between the various topics covered, the ability to express the required topics clearly and comprehensively, to apply the knowledge, autonomy of judgment, communication skills and learning skills.
