Summer School – Empirical Methods for Macroeconomists

19- 22 September 2023


Applications are now open for online attendees for the Empirical Methods for Macroeconomists summer school

The University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School offers a range of applied courses in econometrics for practitioners who are working in areas such as econometrics, macroeconomics, monetary economics, international economics, and financial economics.

Our courses aim at developing technical and practical skills of economists working at policy-related topics at central banks, international organisations, national policy institutions and private sector on forecasting and macroeconomic modeling. These courses can also be of interest for PhD students who want to improve their employability skills in these areas and/or use these tools in their dissertations.

Our program is perfectly aligned with the everlasting need of policy making institutions to use the most appropriate quantitative tools in design and implementation of their policies. Our courses will train you with cutting edge quantitative tools that are in strong demand in policy-making. These courses are taught by leading experts in their fields, either from the University of Glasgow or other leading institutions, who also have strong engagement with policy-making institutions, such as central banks and international organisations. The courses offer both theoretical treatment of the topics and empirical applications relevant for real life needs. The courses can be taken separately or when taken together will appeal to applied economists presenting them with different yet related set of applied econometrics/macroeconomics skills.
