COVID-19 UPDATE:

Some new policies have been announced regarding course delivery, deferral and refund options for 2020-21 academic course intake, as well as flexibilization of dates -Application period extended until September 1, 2020- to allow all prospective students to make the most informed decision possible about joining the Barcelona GSE this year. 

You can review the new policies here.  

Policy-makers are often forced to make decisions under conditions of uncertainty, but the results of these decisions may directly influence a countryโ€™s overall economic performance.

While a thorough understanding of aggregate economy dynamics is necessary for success, it is not entirely sufficient. Organizations must also be knowledgeable of the many sources of aggregate risk and uncertainty, and must rely on the analytical tools available to study the aggregate economy.

Students in the Barcelona GSE Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets Program will obtain relevant knowledge about the central issues in Macroeconomic and Financial Economics analysis, as well as the key tools, data, models, and techniques now being used by public and private institutions.

Financial and consulting firms increasingly utilize complex economic theories. Students will not only learn how to use these modeling and statistical techniques, but will conduct an independent master's project to learn how to apply these new skills to real empirical work. 

This program covers economic models such as the dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE), vector autoregression (VAR), and autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (ARCH). Our graduates are prepared with an expert grasp of aggregate economy and financial function fundamentals, able to build macroeconomic and market forecasts - skills that consulting firms, investment banks, and government agencies are all in need of.

More skills acquired:

  • Deep knowledge of the economic theory behind macroeconomic models of financial markets
  • Comprehension of the dynamics affecting financial and policy-oriented decision-making
  • Numerical methods and simulation techniques applied to quantitative macroeconomics, policy design, and evaluation
  • Precise econometric techniques required for a state-of-the-art applied analysis
  • Ability to create and deliver technical and executive reports and publicly communicate and discuss research work
