The BGPE course program provides doctoral students with a sound knowledge of advanced economic methods and supports them in their own research.
We annually offer three core courses:
- Advanced Econometrics (i.e. Causal Inference, Linear Panel Data Model, Non-Linear Models)
- Advanced Macroeconomics (i.e. New Growth Theory, Dynamic Models in Macroeconomics)
- Advanced Microeconomics (i.e. Contract Theory, Information Economics, Game Theory)
They are complemented by courses on varying selected topics from the field of economics such as Labor Economics, Industrial Organization, Health Economics, or International Trade.
The courses are taught by leading international researchers. Each course lasts one week, with lectures in the morning and the afternoon, and is completed by an exam. Including preparation time courses are equivalent to 5 ECTS.
In the following you find information about upcoming courses as well as an overview of previous courses.
