The course provides a student with a comprehensive picture of the macroeconomic situation and the business development in the Baltic Sea Region. Several top level visiting lecturers, representing business, state administration and the Academia, guarantee that a student receives the most up-to-date information on their field of expertise. In addition to lectures, the course contains an analytical case study (a course work) conducted by a student.
