Summer Courses in Economics

Those who enroll in summer courses are often able to get ahead in their educations. Additionally, those who have already completed a degree are sometimes able to enroll in this type of course to enhance their current careers. 

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.

Programme Description

This course critically explores the contemporary global digital economy with an emphasis on social impact startups as drivers for positive economic and social change. Situated at the Centre for Global Media and Communication in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at SOAS, it provides a unique combination of critical approaches to the emerging digital economy from the perspective of the Global South with practical hands-on knowledge of how to design and develop alternative business models for using digital technology for social change.

The course is structured around three parts. The first week explores the history of post-World War II digital economy and the emergence of the technology startup model as a driver for economic growth, the business and investment “ecosystem” associated with it, and its economic, political and social ramifications. It will draw on case studies from the global digital economy in themes such as big data, smart cities, e-health, mobile banking and AI. During the second week, students will engage with these academic and policy debates on the global digital economy to develop their own projects using digital technology for social good. During the final week, then, the students will, with the help of course convenors and mentors, develop business plans and presentations based on their critical ideas. This will culminate in a social impact incubator-style “pitch day” where students present their project ideas to a group of mock funders in order to get feedback and suggestions on their ideas and its sustainability in real-world situations....

About

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

To provide students with knowledge of a set of modern time series methods necessary for empirical research in macroeconomics. To present a variety of empirical applications in macroeconomics. 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 Barcelona GSE master programs.... [-]

About

The Barcelona GSE Microeconometrics Summer School specializes in the application of econometric techniques and is taught by experts in the field.

The increasing availability of individual data from surveys has led not only to a significant growth in the number of academic jobs of an empirical nature using this type of information but also to a greater number of studies commissioned by public and private institutions in which this type of data is used.

The characteristics of this type of data are such that statistical and econometric techniques appropriate for their treatment have a specific nature, generally differentiated from those appropriate for time series data. The qualitative nature of most of the information, the representativity of the samples used and the censoring issues associated to the dependent variables are, among others, some of the aspects that distinguish these techniques from an econometric perspective....
