Course content: The subject of regional economics should enable the perception of the contradictions of the modern economic development that arise from the dimension of its spatial determination. The regional aspect of economic development in the scientific literature gained its thematic and methodological differentiation through a wide range of problems.

That is why the curriculum covers the following topics: development of modern conceptions of regional development; location analysis; analysis of the factors of modern regional development; regional aspects of globalization; regional policies; the policy of decentralization of local self-government; issues related to the regional development of R. Macedonia.
