The cost of summer courses varies from school to school. Courses at more elite colleges and universities cost considerably more than those at smaller or state schools. The cost is also dependent on the number of courses a student enrolls in.
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.

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 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. Who will benefit from this program?... [-]
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. [+]
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....

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. [+]
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....
