11 - 11 March 2021 / Online /

The Structural Transformation and Economic Growth research programme is offering a free virtual course entitled "Key Concepts in Macro Development" for the spring of 2021, which will be taught by a series of lecturers. 

What? The course is designed around a series of modules of two 90-minute lectures. These modules introduce workhorse models, methods, and ideas in an organised fashion, as well as going over some empirics and recent contributions. The 6 modules constitute 12 lectures. In addition, we have supplemental lectures that are more stand alone and focus on other important topics in macroeconomic development. Together the modules and supplemental lectures constitute 20 lectures, a full quarter course. 

Why? Macro development is a small field. Textbooks are unavailable, and while many graduate programs teach some of these concepts in their courses, very few have a specific course organised around and dedicated to macro development. This virtual course will fill the gap for Ph.D. students or even junior faculty throughout the profession who are interested in these topics but do not have access otherwise. The virtual classes will be interactive, just as virtual graduate lectures in most departments are now. 

For whom? The course is open free-of-charge to all interested Ph.D. students and economics faculty. Course materials (syllabus, lecture presentations, and recorded lectures) will be available after the fact on the STEG website.? 

How to attend? Those who apply and register for the course by 31 January are expected to attend regularly and can actively participate in the Zoom class. Registered graduate students should have a faculty sponsor them.? 

When? 5 February - 7 May, either one (Friday) or two (Thursday and Friday) lectures a week, 4pm London time (GMT through March dates, and then GMT+1 for April and May dates).

The course will be hosted online via Zoom, to register your attendance please click here. To view the full syllabus and the reading material required, please go to https://steg.cepr.org/events/stegvirtualcourse2021.

This course is aimed at MSc, MRes and PhD students, early researchers, and research staff from central banks, ministries, and the private sector, all with some prior experience of macroeconomic modelling. Its contents differ from the CIMS summer school courses, which are usually held in September. The Easter school is focused on a shorter list of themes, some of which not commonly found in summer schools offered by most economics departments.
This year the CIMS Easter school will cover:
• Inequality and risk-sharing in incomplete markets - taught by K. Storesletten
• Collateral and repo markets - taught by M. Pascoa
• Optimal fiscal policy - taught by R. Oikonomou
• DSGE modelling for emerging economies - taught by P. Levine and M. Mirfatah.

7 - 7 May 2021 / Online /

The Structural Transformation and Economic Growth research programme is offering a free virtual course entitled "Key Concepts in Macro Development" for the spring of 2021, which will be taught by a series of lecturers. 

What? The course is designed around a series of modules of two 90-minute lectures. These modules introduce workhorse models, methods, and ideas in an organised fashion, as well as going over some empirics and recent contributions. The 6 modules constitute 12 lectures. In addition, we have supplemental lectures that are more stand alone and focus on other important topics in macroeconomic development. Together the modules and supplemental lectures constitute 20 lectures, a full quarter course. 

Why? Macro development is a small field. Textbooks are unavailable, and while many graduate programs teach some of these concepts in their courses, very few have a specific course organised around and dedicated to macro development. This virtual course will fill the gap for Ph.D. students or even junior faculty throughout the profession who are interested in these topics but do not have access otherwise. The virtual classes will be interactive, just as virtual graduate lectures in most departments are now. 

For whom? The course is open free-of-charge to all interested Ph.D. students and economics faculty. Course materials (syllabus, lecture presentations, and recorded lectures) will be available after the fact on the STEG website.  

How to attend? Those who apply and register for the course by 31 January are expected to attend regularly and can actively participate in the Zoom class. Registered graduate students should have a faculty sponsor them.  

When? 5 February - 7 May, either one (Friday) or two (Thursday and Friday) lectures a week, 4pm London time (GMT through March dates, and then GMT+1 for April and May dates).
