This course is designed to introduce participants to main data-based practical tools for macroeconomic analysis. The aim is to enable students to assess a country’s macroeconomic situation and evaluate medium-term prospects of the economy based on the available statistical data. The course guides participants through a sequence of macroeconomic assessments − sector-by-sector − using case studies based on data from the real economies.
The participants will gain insight into many analytical tools that are used in the applied macroeconomics. During the course, participants will, by using Microsoft Office Excel, learn both how to technically implement these tools and how to interpret the results. The course team is committed to provide you with a meaningful learning experience where you can improve your knowledge and ability to assess and understand a country’s macroeconomic situation.
