The following courses will be offered:

Stock-Flow Consistent Macroeconomic Modeling Using EViews
June 29, 2020 - July 3, 2020

Intensive hands-on course at the introductory level. The course provides theoretical foundations and hands-on experience in building dynamic stock-flow-consistent (SFC) models which integrate real and financial markets.

Practical General Equilibrium Modeling with GAMS
June 29, 2020 - July 3, 2020

Intensive course at the introductory level. For those who have little or no experience in modeling and in GAMS.

Agent-Based Economic Modeling Using Python
June 29, 2020 - July 10, 2020

Intensive and hands-on course at the introductory level.

The course is aimed at participants who have no or little experience with agent-based modeling but have knowledge of programming in python.

Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) Modeling Step-By-Step
June 29, 2020 - July 3, 2020

Intensive course at the introductory level.

This course is tailored for professionals involved in economic forecasting and policy analysis in the central banks, ministries, research organizations, and international institutions.

The course will introduce all the basic tools for constructing and implementing dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models for policy analysis and forecasting.

Energy and Environmental CGE Modeling with GAMS
June 29, 2020 - July 3, 2020

Intensive course at the advanced level. The course will focus on modeling energy and greenhouse gas emissions. This course is only accessible to those who have some experience in general equilibrium modeling and to the alumni of the EcoMod School.

Financial Social Accounting Matrices (FSAM): Building and Modeling Real-Financial Multiplier Models for Policy Analysis
June 29, 2020 - July 3, 2020

This course provides a strong theoretical foundation and hands-on experience in building Social Accounting Matrices according to the new recommendations of System of National Accounts 2008. The content of the course goes beyond the generalized input-output framework for calculating simple multipliers by considering a Financial Social Accounting Matrix (FSAM).

Machine Learning with Python for Economics and Econometrics
June 29, 2020 - July 3, 2020

Intensive and hands-on course at the introductory level.

The course will introduce all the basic techniques of machine learning using Python, Keras and tensorFlow.

As data become available faster and in huge quantities, businesses and governments require new analytical methods. Big Data and Machine Learning became essential for economics, finance, government and businesses to learn about.

Macroeconometric Modeling using EViews
June 29, 2020 - July 3, 2020

Intensive course at the introductory level. This course is tailored for staff developing or using small or medium size macro models and staff involved in forecasting and policy analysis in the central banks, ministries and international institutions.
