Macroeconometrics is an important area of research in economics. Time series methods for empirical macroeconomics have become very popular and widely used in the academia as well as in public and private institutions.

The goal of the Barcelona Macroeconometrics Summer School is to offer courses covering a wide range of topics in macroeconometrics. The courses have the following objectives:

To provide students with knowledge of a set of modern time series methods necessary for empirical research in macroeconomics.
To present a variety of empirical applications in macroeconomics.
To survey some of the recent developments in macroeconometrics.

Course leader

It is directed by Luca Gambetti, Professor of Economics at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professor.

Course aim

In general, the courses will have an empirical orientation. Although econometric theory will have a central role, special attention will be paid to the applications and data. The level of the courses should be comparable to those taught in the Barcelona GSE master programs. These courses should be of interest to masters and graduate students as well as practitioners who want to expand their knowledge in the area.
