Warwick Economics Summer School

The Department of Economics at The University of Warwick is launching its next Warwick Economics Summer School, a three week programme which will run from July 17th – August 6th 2016. Our Intermediate Macroeconomics course is aimed at current undergraduates studying Economics.

Alongside the teaching and learning, we have an inspirational programme of evening speakers with Nobel Prize winner Professor George Akerlof, Nick Crafts, CBE, world-renowned Economic historian and Julie Meyer, award winning American entrepreneur, Chief Executive and business commentator delivering talks and sharing their insights with students in previous years. It is an excellent opportunity for students to further enhance their skills and knowledge in Economics through studying and debating at one of the leading Economics departments in Europe.

Our Macroeconomics course aims to deepen students’ understanding in core areas of Economics and will reflect the highest standards of Warwick learning.

Course aim

Macroeconomics has been at the forefront of the headlines in recent years with lively debate involving economists and politicians as to the best response to the global financial crisis, subsequent recession and sovereign debt crisis.

Using core theoretical models including flex-price and sticky-price models, this course will build upon your existing knowledge and look in-depth at economic growth, consumption, price-setting, investment, business cycles, wage setting and unemployment and money and inflation for both open and closed economies.

The aim of the course is to enhance understanding of real–world macroeconomic experiences, particularly involving monetary, fiscal and economic policy. There will be a focus on international trade and financial markets and we will also study the monetary unions.
