Past Sessions

1st Summer School
2nd Summer School
3rd Summer School




Participants to the Summer School would ideally hold a Master’s degree on Economics and/or econometrics or in a relevant subject with a good background in economics. However, PhD students and students of MSc programs willing to continue their studies for a Ph.D. are strongly encouraged to apply to the Course. Participants can be members of the academic society but people outside academia (e.g., government, public and private sector) are also welcome, given that they have the minimum academic qualification and relevant experience. Finally, participants should have a good knowledge of the English language.


Participants will be selected according to the following criteria:

  • - Educational background
  • - Letter of Intent (why you want to attend the summer school)


Approximately 30 students will be admitted to the Summer School. We intend to restrict the class size to ensure interactive course and discussion. We aim to create a truly international student body on a first-come, first-served basis.


Students admitted to the 4th Summer School in Advanced Economics are expected to fully participate in the program and attend all lectures, computer labs and social events.
