The target participants will choose one of the <strong>two parallel four-day courses</strong> as follows:</p> <ol> <li>Foundations of DSGE Modelling which aimed at early researchers with some knowledge of Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) macroeconomic models and Matlab, but little or no experience of Dynare. The main goal of the Foundations course is to provide instructions on the construction and estimation of Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models and for their use for policy analysis.</li> <li>Advanced Topics in DSGE Modelling is aimed at more established researchers who are already fluent in Dynare and Matlab. This course will be useful to anyone who is engaged in practical macroeconomic modelling work, especially if they are interested in working with models that are either computationally expensive to simulate, highly nonlinear, or infinite-dimensional thanks to heterogeneous agents.</li> </ol> <p>The foundations and advanced courses will run in parallel for four days from 7-10 September. Then on day 5, 11 September participants will be able to choose one of six <strong>one-day standalone courses</strong> covering:</p> <ul> <li>Credit Market Imperfections and Poverty Traps</li> <li>DSGE-VAR Models and Forecasting</li> <li>Financial Frictions in DSGE Models</li> <li>Financial Markets: Collateral, Repo, and Credit Default Swaps</li> <li>Robust Qualitative Methods for Macro</li> <li>Tractable Heterogeneous Agents Models (TANK/HANK)</li> </ul> <p>Finally, on Saturday 12 September we will hold a <strong>one-day conference</strong>. All participants on the Courses are invited to submit a paper on some aspect of DSGE modelling to be presented in either full or during a Poster session.</p> <p>We are pleased to announce that our keynote speakers for this year’s conference are Professor Morten Ravn (UCL) and Professor Kjetil Storesletten (University of Oslo).</p> <p><strong>Online delivery method:</strong></p> <ul> <li>The course will be conducted using Zoom platform</li> <li>The university and the lecturers are used to do online teaching and have state-of-the-art systems to do so and are able to deliver highly interactive experiences. We will limit the number of participants in the course and have additional lecturers per room to ensure a highly interactive experience. Though we will do our best to record all the sessions, we are expecting participants to attend them live to enable them to interact with lectures and ask questions.</li> <li>There will be opportunities to discuss the projects and research ideas of the participants. This will occur both informally during the virtual coffee breaks and virtual dinners, as well as formally during the conference. After the summer school, lecturers will be available to answer questions and discuss the projects of the participants.</li> <li>We will hold a conference integrated with the summer school. The two keynote speakers are Professor Morten Ravn (UCL) and Professor Kjetil Storesletten (University of Oslo).</li> <li>Participants will be sent computer codes, lecture notes, and slides ahead of time. Participants will also receive direct assistance before the summer school starts in order to set up all the systems ahead of the online events.</li> <li>The summer school covers the theoretical aspects of the techniques. In addition, the summer school is very hands-on and participants will have carefully implemented exercises where they need to modify parts of the codes. This will be done in the lectures, both in groups and with the help of the instructors. The participants will receive solutions to all exercises and will be provided with computer codes that you may then use in your own research.</li> <li>Please note that all participants need to have their own copy of Matlab since they will be using their own computers.

Module A concentrates on recent contributions from trade theory that motivate gravity models and form the basis of policy trade policy analysis. The second module will take a closer look at the econometric issues of the estimation of gravity models and of performing policy simulations. Starting point is the econometric literature on high-dimensional non-linear panel models and the implementations in Stata. Lastly, there will be lab sessions, where applications in Stata will be discussed and important applied work published in refereed journals will be replicated.

Understand the key components of its construction provides the participants with a tool to deepen the analysis of the financial sector and of the determinants of financial vulnerability associated with interactions with other sectors of the real side of the economy.</p> </div> <div><a href="https://ecomod.net/modeling-school/list-of-courses/financial-social-accounting-matrices-fsam-building-and-modeling-real?utm_source=INOMICS&utm_medium=Announcement&utm_campaign=Modeling%20School%202020" target="_blank">Read more</a></div> <div><a href="https://ecomod.net/modeling-school/ecomod-school-of-modeling-and-data-science-prague-2020/financial-social-accounting-m?utm_source=INOMICS&utm_medium=Announcement&utm_campaign=Modeling%20School%202020" target="_blank">Register</a></div> <div> </div> </div> <div> <div><strong><a href="https://ecomod.net/modeling-school/list-of-courses/machine-learning-with-python-for-economics-and-econometrics?utm_source=INOMICS&utm_medium=Announcement&utm_campaign=Modeling%20School%202020" target="_blank"><span style="font-size:20px;">Machine Learning with Python for Economics and Econometrics</span></a></strong></div> </div> <div> <div> <p>Intensive and hands-on course at the introductory level.

It will be suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course and you want a programme that increases your subject knowledge as well as improves your academic skills. This five-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further four years of study. During your Year Zero, you study four academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module. You are an Essex student from day one, a member of our global community based at the most internationally diverse campus university in the UK. After successful completion of Year Zero in our Essex Pathways Department, you progress to complete your course with the Department of Language and Linguistics. On our course you’ll become highly proficient in Italian and will be able to study a further two of the modern languages taught at Essex, including German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Mandarin Chinese. These languages can be studied alongside the language expert modules which cover a range of cultural and professional skills. For most of our languages, we offer modules in all six different levels recognised by the Common European Framework. With two modules completed in Italian each year, you are expected to reach Mastery level in the language by the end of our course, and are also encouraged to gain confidence in one or two other languages of your choice. As well as gaining fluency in Italian, you become proficient in a broad range of its practical use, from professional translation to creative writing.</p> Tue, 04/21/2020 - 13:55 775658 775658 Healthcare Management BAS https://studypunk.com/program/healthcare-management-bas-1330251 <p>The Healthcare Management specialization prepares students for management roles in the healthcare field.
