(Introduction to) Practical CGE Modelling: Online Course, October 31 to December 10 2017
The target audiences for this course are model users, potential model developers, and commissioners of policy studies seeking to develop a basic understanding of CGE models. On completing the course graduates should be able to use simple single country CGE models (in GAMS) to run and interpret ‘standard’ policy experiments.
The course uses simple closed economy and open economy models. The 6 modules cover theory, techniques, policy experiments and interpretation and conclude with a project. Each module requires the participants to submit an assignment; this allows the tutor to monitor progress and understanding. There are also two open source modules about GAMS and Social Accounting Matrices that need completing before starting the online course.
The course is designed to take participants between 60 and 90 hours for 5 weeks. A ‘short’ version, over 2 weeks, is available. Both versions allow for 1 week of ‘slippage’.
Course Fees
Developed country: Professional - £900; Student - £600
Developing country: Professional - £750; Student - £450; Scholarship - £100
