CREI Macroeconomics Summer School

The Barcelona CREI Macroeconomics Summer School offers an overview of the current state of research in key areas of macroeconomics.

The courses are taught by leading experts in their fields. They cover recent developments in different areas of macroeconomics, including international macroeconomics, asset and credit bubbles, sovereign debt crises, numerical methods, firms and finance, and econometrics for policy evaluation.

A key benefit of attending this summer school is that courses provide both technical tools and “big picture” ideas on macroeconomics and finance so that they can be useful for advanced students and practitioners alike. Moreover, faculty are accessible to summer school participants for lively discussions on research and – more generally – on course contents.

This Summer School is jointly organized by the Barcelona School of Economics and the Center for Research in International Economics (CREI), a research institute sponsored by the Generalitat de Catalunya and Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in fulfilment of its aim to promote the dissemination of research in macroeconomics and related areas.
