Intermediate CGE Modelling: Online Course

Online: 22nd Jan 2018 to 4th March 2018

There are five (5) modules in the course:

  1. A Simple CGE Model: Theory
  2. A Simple CGE Model: Techniques
  3. The STAGE (1) CGE Model: Theory & Setup
  4. The STAGE (1) CGE Model: Policy Experiments and Interpretation
  5. Course Project

The first 3 modules have 18 components that require 2-3 hours of study. The fourth module has 2 components that require 12-18. The project should take 12-18 hours. The ‘standard’ course is over 5 weeks, with an allowance for 1 week of slippage. A ‘short’ version is over 2 weeks, with an allowance for 1 week of slippage.  Each module requires the participants to submit an assignment; this allows the tutor to monitor progress and understanding.

A prerequisite for the course is completing the ‘Practical CGE Modelling course’, or equivalent (ask the contact  for the course if you want to claim exemption).

The materials are delivered using MOODLE, which provides an asynchronous forum in which participants engage with each other participants and the course instructor.

Questions and requests for advice submitted between 0800 and 1600 UTC will be responded to by the end of the next working (Monday to Friday) day, i.e., by 1600 UTC.
