Macroeconometrics Summer School

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 BSE Macroeconometrics Summer School is to offer courses covering a wide range of topics in macroeconometrics. The courses have the following objectives:

  1. To provide students with knowledge of a set of modern time series methods necessary for empirical research in macroeconomics. 
  2. To present a variety of empirical applications in macroeconomics. 
  3. To survey some of the recent developments in macroeconometrics. 

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 BSE Master's programs.
