The Department of Economic Analysis: Economic Theory and Economic History at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) plans to offer a series of modular workshops to address key methodological issues of interest for researchers in economics. Different courses will be presented under a common title of "ADVANCED COURSES IN ECONOMICS" (ACE). Within this generic name, each year there will be specific courses that will take the form of a Continuing Education Course at the UAM.

 

The courses will be taught primarily in English, by a combination of local scholars from the UAM as well as invited professors from national and international leading institutions. These courses are offered to the graduate students from the UAM, as well as to all graduate students, researchers, young scholars and professional economists working in national and international institutions.

 

The courses will be normally offered in 1 or 2 weeks, during the evenings (4-8 pm), at the UAM Economics and Business School.

 

The main objectives of these seminars are:

  •  To fill the gap observed in several academic and professional institutions regarding the knowledge of recent developments in economic theory, as well as the use of tools in advanced economic analysis.
  •  To promote the advanced knowledge in quantitative analysis techniques with a practical and "learning by doing" approach.
  •  To promote learning in the presentation of scientific results in the format of an academic journal, posing hypotheses, designing experiments and models needed by selecting the appropriate variables and presenting the results effectively.
  •  To promote interaction among students, researchers, professionals and local and invited scholars, creating a comfortable atmosphere for scientific discussions, and encouraging the development of joint research projects.

 

Within this general context, the interested reader could find below the links to seminars offered for the next months. Through this links you could have access to all the information regarding each specific course, as well as the selection criteria and the application procedure.
