Introduction to Practical Global CGE Modeling: Online Course
Practical CGE Modelling with GAMS
Online: 12th June to 21st July 2017
There are five (5) modules in the course spread over 5 weeks:
An introduction to GAMS and GAMSIDE. An introduction to Social Accounting Matrices
Implementing the classic 2*2*2*2 closed economy model in GAMS
Modeling trade using the Armington insights
Using a simple (state of the art in the late 1990s) single country CGE model in GAMS

The first 4 modules each have 6 components that should take about 2 hours of study together with some background readings. Similarly the project should take about 12-18 hours. The materials are delivered using MOODLE, a modern electronic learning environment. MOODLE provides an asynchronous forum in which participants engage with each other participants and the course instructor.
Pre arranged contact with the instructors via SKYPE.
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.
