Macroeconometrics is an important area of research in economics. Time series methods for empirical macroeconomics have become very popular and widely used in the academia as well as in public and private institutions. The goal of the Barcelona Macroeconometrics Summer School is to offer courses covering a wide range of topics in macroeconometrics.

Course leader

It is directed by Luca Gambetti, Professor of Economics at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professor.

Target group

Candidates who would benefit from the Macroeconometrics Summer School include:rnResearchers and practitioners working at central banks as well as other private and public institutions whose work would benefit from a course focused on the latest advances in macroeconometrics. rnMasters and PhD students who want to extend their knowledge in macroeconometrics and learn more about frontier research topics.

Course aim

In general, the courses will have an empirical orientation. Although econometric theory will have a central role, special attention will be paid to the applications and data. The level of the courses should be comparable to those taught in the Barcelona GSE master programs. These courses should be of interest to masters and graduate students as well as practitioners who want to expand their knowledge in the area.

Credits info

At the conclusion of the Summer Schools, participants will receive a certificate for the number of hours attended. All Barcelona GSE courses require an average of twice the lecture hours for readings, pre-readings and class preparation. Interested students should check with their universities to see if these hours are transferable into ECTS credits.
