This course provides students with a working knowledge of macroeconomic models that explicitly incorporate financial markets. The goal is to develop a broad and analytical framework for analyzing the interaction of financial decisions, macroeconomic events and policy decisions.

Global business environment

This course gives the framework and tools for understanding economic events, taking financial decisions and evaluating investment opportunities in a global economy. It builds up an integrated model of exchange rate and output determination, and explains how monetary and fiscal policies work.

Economic thinking

This course introduces frameworks and tools for understanding the economic dimensions of the world we live in. The course includes applications to real world situations and events. Assessment is through group projects. The course is divided in two parts: Microeconomics and Macroeconomics.

Recursive Methods in Macroeconomics

This is a PhD course on recursive methods used in modern macroeconomics. Recursive representations of macroeconomic models are useful because they are parsimonious and allow the computer to be used to solve for the equilibrium and the dynamics of the model.
