Empirical research, tailored to your interests
“Although this programme is mainly theoretical, we apply the tools we acquire to real data and test models. For instance, we did an empirical study of GDP per capita growth since the 1970s. We looked at data from countries at various stages of development (least developed, less developed and developed), and analysed the impact of the level of education (primary, secondary and tertiary) on the countries’ economic growth.
“We also did a study on modelling money demand. Money supply and demand can be a function of many other variables – like inflation, for instance. These are just two examples of projects we undertook. Because of the small number of students on the programme, we’re able to tailor our projects towards the subjects that interest us.”
