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.
Our program also offers students guest seminars and lectures by international academics and practitioners.
A closing conference will be held as an interactive forum between the academic and professional worlds. The presentation and discussion of students' applied work will be combined with expert talks covering both institutional topics as well as the presentation of original academic research.
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.
By the end of the program, students must complete 60 ECTS (a total of 6 mandatory courses and 9 elective courses)
A master project, which will be supervised in regular meetings with an advisor, will allow each student to put their knowledge into practice and improve their writing and exposition skills.
A limited number of places will be available to practitioners who would like to enroll in specific courses.
In September, all Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets Program students are required to take a mathematics, statistics, and computer tools brush-up course.
In the second term, students will have the opportunity to take a course in Text mining and web scraping with R . This course is not mandatory, but highly recommended.
