Following the highly successful Easter and Summer Schools in previous years, the Centre for International Macroeconomic Studies (CIMS) in the School of Economics, University of Surrey will run a 4-day Course on Macroeconomic Modelling and Policy,18-21 April 2023. The deadline for application is  4 April 2023, although places will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis

This 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 courses, which are 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.

This is a Virtual Easter school (online) this year.

As part of the CIMS Easter school, courses will cover:

  • Optimal fiscal policy and computational method I -  taught by R. Oikonomou
  • Optimal fiscal policy and computational method II -  taught by V. Valaitis
  • Inequality in incomplete markets -  taught by K. Storesletten
  • Topics in sovereign debt and default -  taught by H. Joo, K. Shakhnov, and T. Asonuma
  • A basic prior knowledge of Matlab will help substantially, but is not required. Participants should have their own copy of Matlab.

Online delivery method:

  • The course will be conducted using Zoom platform.
  • The university and the lecturers have extensive experience with online teaching and have state-of-the-art systems to do so as well as being able to deliver highly interactive lectures. We do our best to record all the sessions. We also expect, and recommend, that participants attend the courses live so as to enable interactions with the lectures. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have throughout the sessions. Recordings will be available for two months after the Easter school concludes.
  • Participants will be sent computer codes, lecture notes, and slides ahead of time. Participants will also receive direct assistance before the Easter school starts in order to set up all the systems ahead of the online events.
