  • The measurement of firms´efficiency and productivity

Fecha  21-25 de mayo de 2018

Benchmarking is becoming an increasingly popular tool to compare operations and performance across firms within an industry, between branches within a firm itself, or organizations. This course presents both the theory and the methods underlying the definition and measurement of economic efficiency and productivity, and its decomposition into its source components (profit change, efficiency change, technical change, returns to scale, etc.). Mathematical optimization as well as frontier econometric techniques are used to empirically calculate several performance and rankings indicators, which in turn are used to make suitable decisions aimed at improving the efficiency, productivity and profitability of firms.

  • Seminario de Metodología e Investigación: "Global Vars"

Fecha  13 y 14 de junio de 2018

The objective of the course is to introduce the necessary tools and econometric techniques used in the development of GVAR (Global Vector AutoRegressive) models, compact representations of the world economy designed to explicitly take into account the economic and financial interdependencies at national and international levels. The course includes a theoretical and a practical session. The theoretical session covers the foundations underlying the GVAR modeling approach, and presents some examples of GVAR applications. This knowledge provides useful background for the practical session, which consists of an introduction to the use of the GVAR Toolbox 2.0, an easy-to-use platform for setting up and estimating GVAR models.
