Kiel Institute Advanced Studies in International Economic Policy Research

The Kiel Institute will continue its successful Advanced Studies in International Economic Policy Research with a new program starting in August 2016 :

Macroeconomics in Open Economies  –  Roberto Rigobon (MIT)
Financial Markets and the Macro-Economy  –  Yuliy Sannikov (Princeton)
Debt Crises and Macro-Prudential Policy  –  Enrique Mendoza (Pennsylvania)
Monetary Policy: Theory and Practice  –  Volker Wieland (Frankfurt)
Exchange-Rate Economics  –  Lucio Sarno (London)
Firms in International Trade  –  Marc Melitz (Harvard)
Trade Policy Analysis with Gravity Models  –  Yoto Yotov (Drexel)
Economic Growth  –  Gino Gancia (Barcelona)
Economic Development  –  Marcel Fafchamps (Stanford) 

The 10 month program addresses in particular M.A. graduates who are interested in a career at international organisations, ministries and central banks, financial corporations, research institutes and development institutions, or who wish to improve their chances of admission to PhD programs at renowned universities.

The program is also relevant for economists with some years of professional experience who would like to keep up with recent academic developments in the field, and for PhD candidates who are enrolled at universities without an own PhD program (or who would like to attend the above courses as a complement to their local PhD program). Participation in selected courses of the program is possible.

Detailed information on the program is provided on the Kiel Institute´s website
