ESSA is proud to announce the launch of The University of Melbourne’s first free online course Principles of Macroeconomics through education provider Coursera. The subject will be taught by Nilss Olekalns, Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics and ESSA Board of Advisors.
To coincide with the launch, ESSA is thrilled to announce our official affiliation with Nilss Olekalns and the University to deliver this course. Teaching assistants Karen Lee (Founding President, 2012; Board of Advisors), Theo Josseff (Vice-President) and Kim Liu (Equilibrium Editor), have been working tirelessly with the academic staff at the University of Melbourne in preparing for today’s commencement.
Over the next 8 weeks we hope to exemplify how macroeconomics is an exciting and highly relevant area of study, in which we are all affected by in both small and large degrees. Everyday media outlets feature topics originating from macroeconomics, and with well over 40,000 enrolments from around the world, there is no denying the relevance and importance that people value in understanding the forces that shape the greater economy.
We are looking forward to ESSA’s involvement with Coursera and the University in engaging new economics students from around the globe.
