We have been holding an Easter school on Stag Hill campus every year since April 2015.
The 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's, which is 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.
A basic prior knowledge of Matlab will help.
This year the Easter school will cover inequality in incomplete markets (taught by K. Storesletten), collateral and repo markets (taught by M. Pascoa), optimal fiscal policy (taught by R. Oikonomou) and DSGE modelling for emerging economies (taught by P.Levine and M. Mirfatah).
Should you require any further information or for enquiries please contact the CIMS team.
The courses have been taught by the following instructors over the years:
