NEW LMEC course structure with econometrics track

LMEC provides rigorous training in economics and econometrics, combining research methods with practical research experience. Starting from 2019/2020 the quantitative skills of students are enhanced by a new track in Econometrics.

During the first year, common to both tracks, students will learn the core elements of micro and macroeconomic theory, mathematical economics, econometrics and finance. Developing on these fundamental competences, during the second year students will choose between the two tracks, selecting activities from a list of advanced courses in economics and econometrics.

The Track in Economics provides a deep understanding of the foundations of advanced micro and macroeconomic theories and their application to a wide range of fields of specialization. The objective is to gain knowledge on specific areas of economic research, such as  behavioral economics, development economics, industrial economics, international economics, labor economics, monetary and financial economics, political economics, and public economics.

The Track in Econometrics focuses on advanced econometric techniques and quantitative methods used in time series, macroeconomics, finance, microeconomics and for policy design and evaluation at both the micro and macro level. The objective is to give the students a  flexible, cutting-edge set of tools for the specification, estimation and testing of economic/econometric models in order to solve the modelling issues arising in different contexts, including data-rich environments.
