You can usually take higher education courses if you’re 18 or older. They’re regularly taught in universities, colleges and professional institutions such as art schools or agricultural colleges - nearly all of which have their own websites.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.

About

In recent years, after reducing their reference interest rates at nearly 0%, most central banks designed a variety of novel monetary policy tools to fight recessions, including communication strategies, credit policies, and large-scale asset purchases. These new measures often referred to as “unconventional” monetary policies. The objective of this course is to provide participants with a thorough understanding of the state-of-the-art research on different types of unconventional policies, of their costs and benefits, and of their effects on financial and aggregate economic variables.

The Barcelona GSE Intensive Course on Unconventional Monetary Policy’s faculty includes some of the leading academics and economists in the area of monetary policy, with extensive experience in policymaking institutions such as the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank.

About

The Barcelona GSE Intensive Course on Energy Economics: Current Methods and Policy Challenges serves as a forum for participants to discuss the main challenges facing the energy sector. The course also provides participants with a deep understanding of the main concepts and tools needed to analyze the performance of energy markets. Relevant global regulatory experiences in the energy sector are used to illustrate the main topics of the course.

The faculty includes leading academic economists and practitioners with extensive expertise in the area.

Key benefits

Energy markets are at a crossroads. Technology change is having a dramatic impact in the energy industry: the contribution of renewable energies has grown rapidly during the last five years, and new sources of gas are been found. This poses new challenges for market design and environmental policy. Energy has to be affordable, sustainable and secure and yet no single country or region has found the recipe to achieve this triple objective. Do electricity markets fail and if so why? Do regulators need new instruments to guide investment incentives and if so which? How should the efforts towards increasing energy efficiency be undertaken? Is retail competition in the energy sector feasible and desirable? The regulatory debate in electricity markets is as open and exciting as ever.... [-]

About

The digital sector has become pervasive in our economies and has transformed our lives in many (mostly positive) respects. But there are increasing concerns that competition in digital markets does not work properly, leading to the creation of dominant platforms with persistent market power. This in turn may make it difficult for rivals to challenge the position of the incumbents and may not deliver to consumers the benefits that a truly open market would provide. Antitrust authorities have investigated (and sanctioned) some practices adopted by these dominant platforms, but there is also a debate on the extent to which competition law may be able to intervene, and how.

This course offers the opportunity to understand how the digital economy works, and under what conditions competition may not function as it should in this sector. It provides participants with a thorough understanding of how to evaluate the substitutability between different offerings and when to view practices such as tying, exclusive contracts, price-parity clauses, and discriminatory access to platforms as anti-competitive (but also explain in what circumstances they are likely to be beneficial). It also offers a framework to address mergers and acquisitions of smaller and/or potential competitors, to evaluate their possible anti-competitive and pro-competitive effects and to identify when they should be approved and when not. The course includes a review of a number of high-profile cases of abuse of dominance and anti-competitive agreements, from the older Microsoft and Intel cases, to more recent cases involving online travel agencies, e-books,...
