Economics

Online summer courses are offered by the overwhelming majority of post-secondary institutions. Online learning allows students to take courses from virtually anywhere in the world. Students looking for a nontraditional classroom experience should consider taking online summer courses.

There is evidence of economic writing that dates all the way back to the Mesopotamian era. The development of modern economics is largely due to two groups which were known as the physiocrats and the mercantilists. These groups help develop capitalism in Europe in the 16th century.

Overview This two-week programme will introduce students to the fundamentals of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and related fields of study including econometrics, banking and financial management. On the Oxford Royale Academy Economics course, you’ll have the chance to learn about the economics that underpin our daily lives, what causes financial crises, and different schools of thought among economists about how we can make our society a more economically stable and prosperous one to live in. Economics affects so much of our lives yet so many of us find it mysterious, so in this two-week course you can lift the lid on some of the principles, debates and uncertainties that the study of Economics holds. Academic Content What happens if you increase taxes for the rich? Will a higher minimum wage help to lift people out of poverty, or just increase unemployment? What does having a weak currency mean for a country, practically? Why are Freddos so much more expensive than they used to be? In this Economics course, you’ll learn the answers different experts have to each of these questions, and come to understand why the different theories that underpin their answers might lead them to disagree. You’ll look at the impact of individual decisions on economic systems (microeconomics), economics over a larger, especially national scale (macroeconomics) and other areas such as statistics in economics, and the history of economic thought. Students are encouraged to present their own opinions for discussion, whether you’d like to make a rousing defence of Marxism or... [-]

Barcelona Microeconometrics Summer School

Barcelona Graduate School of Economics
Campus Part time 5 - 10 days September 2018 Spain Barcelona

Given the strong methodological and empirical nature of the course methodology, candidates to take this Summer School include: Researchers and professionals from public institutions (economists from ministries of economy, labor, industry, etc.,) or private institutions (economists from the research departments of financial firms or consultants) whose work requires the handling and treatment of individual data. PhD and master students in economics (or in the social sciences) who intend to or are in the process of preparing dissertations with an empirical component that requires an econometric treatment of individual data. Holders of undergraduate degrees in economics or the social sciences who wish to round out their background in quantitative topics that have a general and/or specific applicability. [+]

Best Summer Courses in Economics 2017/2018. 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, the censoring issues associated to the dependent variables are, among others, some of the aspects that distinguish these techniques from an econometric perspective. Furthermore, the growing importance of this type of information has also meant that a significant number of official surveys from different countries have a panel data structure. That is, one individual (person, household, firm) is observed for several time periods. This type of data have some econometric advantage and also requires the use of specific techniques. Finally, it is becoming a usual practice to evaluate public policies by comparing the results of a given treatment in a group of individuals with those of another group with similar characteristics that hasn’t been the object of the treatment. To do this, information from surveys is also used, this being a specific framework for the application of econometric techniques for individual data. [-]

Neoliberalism in Crisis? Global Perspectives

SOAS Summer School
Campus Full time 3 weeks July 2018 United Kingdom London

This Summer School course – led by an interdisciplinary SOAS team drawn from the fields of economics, politics, and development studies – offers a concise and informative introduction to the contested nature of the different crises of neoliberalism. [+]

Programme Description This Summer School course – led by an interdisciplinary SOAS team drawn from the fields of economics, politics, and development studies – offers a concise and informative introduction to the contested nature of the different crises of neoliberalism. Neoliberalism is often depicted as an expansion in free markets and the privileging of big business; the reengineering of government as an ‘entrepreneurial’ actor; and the imposition of ‘fiscal discipline’, particularly in relation to the poor. As a model for the economy, society, and the planet, it has experienced profound problems and social revolts across the world. The course is organised into three parts. First, we will examine how the current neoliberal period can be understood in relation to the longer history of capitalism, before exploring analytical models on the complex relationship between the state and the market. Second, we will unpack key themes for understanding policy practices linked to neoliberalism, including the growth of the financial industry, global trade, and international development. Third, all these debates will come together in a final part which explores forms of advocacy against neoliberalism, including attention to imperialism, austerity, authoritarianism, and potential future pathways within and beyond the capitalist system. This course is taught by Dr Matthew Eagleton-Pierce. Fees Tuition: a tuition fee of £1500 will be charged per 3-week programme. This figure does not include accommodation fees. Application fee: a one-off, non-refundable application fee of £60 will be charged to cover administration costs. Please visit the SOAS online store to make your... [-]
