Advanced Courses in Economics for Doctoral Students and Faculty Members

Several Advanced Courses in Economics for Doctoral Students and Faculty Members are offered each year. In each of the week-long courses, a leading international academic teaches material closely related to her or his recent research.

Each course includes formal lectures of three hours per day as well as exercise review sessions, discussions, or possibilities for informal interaction. Course weeks start on Monday at 10:30h and end on Friday at noon. Advance reading assignments help the participants prepare for the material covered in class. On completion of the course, participants receive a confirmation. In some of the Advanced Courses a final exam may be offered.
