Recursive Dynamic CGE Modelling: Online Short Course

This course is offered in cycles 2, 3 and 4

There are three (3) modules in the course:

  1. The Basics of a Recursive Dynamic CGE Model
  2. Recursive Dynamic Single Country CGE Model or Recursive Dynamic Global CGE Model
  3. Course Project (Single country or Global)

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

The first modules have 7 components which each require c 3 hours of study and uses the SMOD from the Practical CGE coures. The second module has 8 components that require c 24 in total. This uses either the STAGE_t or GLOBE_t model. The project - single country or global - requires c 18 hours. The course is over 3 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 completion of the ‘Single Country CGE Modelling course’ or ‘Global 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 can 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.
