Single Country CGE Modelling: Online Course

This course is offered in cycle 2

There are four (4) modules in the course:

  1. STAGE_t CGE Model: Theory
  2. STAGE_t CGE Model: Exercises
  3. Interpreting Model (STAGE_t) Results: Exercises
  4. Course Project

This is an advanced course designed to meet the requirements of participants who want to develop further the technical and analytical skills as ‘users’ of CGE models for applied studies and/or modellers.

The first 2 modules have 13 components which each require c 3 hours of study. The third module has 3 components that require c 21 in total. The project requires c 18 hours. The course is over 6 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 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.
