Those who enroll in summer courses are often able to get ahead in their educations. Additionally, those who have already completed a degree are sometimes able to enroll in this type of course to enhance their current careers.
Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.

“… I have begun to be somewhat merry because I have been told that that is good for one’s health.” (Voltaire, Letter to the Abbé Trublet, 1761)
This program is designed to provide an overview of facts, questions, and models at the frontier of research in health economics and economics of well-being. Health and well-being are closely related concepts. Indeed, economists often use self-reported measures of well-being as a proxy for utility. In this approach, well-being is considered as an aggregate of satisfactions in several domains, including mental and physical health, but also income, social life, housing, and leisure, in particular. Interestingly, among these domains, people give a disproportionate weight to health and income in well-being. For this reason, health and well-being need to be studied together....

Summer Courses in Economics.
While experiments have been considered for long as a specific domain within economics (“experimental economics”), the experimental method is now widely considered as a tool among others in the typical economist’s toolbox. Its use has shed light on many areas, on the theoretical side (decision theory, game theory, markets) as on the more applied and descriptive ones (policy, development, labor econ., IO, health econ., etc.). It has led to the blossoming of “behavioral economics”, but its general relevance goes much deeper than that. The purpose of this program is to provide young researchers with the methodological skills required to pursue experiments in their own research, with a strong focus on lab experiment....

Institutions and social frictions (associated with inequalities, political conflicts, corruption, and cultural polarization) have emerged as central themes in development economics. This course takes stock of existing research and moves on to draw the outline of the current research frontier. How do institutions shape the development process?
How do understudied informal institutions, such as identities and customs, interact with formal institutions? How do we interpret recent trends in inequality within low- and middle-income countries? What do these trends teach us about institutions and development?
The programme approaches these questions by drawing on formal theory and rigorous empirical research in two core modules: “Inequality and development” and “Institutions and Social Frictions”. In addition, three shorter modules develop empirical applications of the core course themes. These modules cover the role of historical legacies, conflict, corruption, and media in economic development. The objective of the programme is to equip you with the background and tools you need as a researcher to contribute to this dynamic field....

Summer Courses in Economics.
The Microeconometrics and Policy Evaluation programme presents recent developments in the microeconomic analysis of impact evaluation, with two courses taught by experts in their fields.
Providing a credible estimation of a causal effect has become a standard in economic analysis, both in research papers and policy reports. But it is also equally important to integrate the estimated effects into economic models, in order to improve the design of policies. The programme therefore proposes a comprehensive approach of policy analysis.
The first course, Methods of policy evaluation introduces the main methods currently used for program evaluation, with practical classes guiding students through the implementation of the different techniques in Stata. Going one step further, the second course, Linking program evaluation to economic theory, presents recent advances in applied microeconomics that fully integrate impact evaluation into economic analysis....

The Macroeconomic Analysis and Policy module is made of courses dealing with topics at the frontier of policy-relevant research: monetary and fiscal policy; heterogeneous households, inequality and redistribution (“HANK” models); financial crises; bubbles; labor markets and unemployment; and international linkages.
The courses are taught by leading research and teaching figures in their respective fields. Emphasis is put on introducing tools and developing intuition. All courses review core, standard models useful for understanding crises and recessions, and the role of policy therein. Each course contains at least one part that deals with recent research at the frontier...

Macroeconometrics is an important area of research in economics. Time series methods for empirical macroeconomics have become very popular and widely used in the academia as well as in public and private institutions.
The goal of the Barcelona GSE Macroeconometrics Summer School is to offer courses covering a wide range of topics in macroeconometrics. The courses have the following objectives:
To provide students with knowledge of a set of modern time series methods necessary for empirical research in macroeconomics.
To present a variety of empirical applications in macroeconomics.
To survey some of the recent developments in macroeconometrics.
In general, the courses will have an empirical orientation. Although econometric theory will have a central role, special attention will be paid to the applications and data. The level of the courses should be comparable to those taught in the Barcelona GSE master programs....
