|The PEP-Laval Intensive Graduate School in Development Economics provides flexible, advanced and accelerated training in the understanding and promotion of economic development. It addresses the local and global need for such training expressed by students and researchers around the world, who wish to conduct rigorous scientific research on issues related to poverty, economic and human development.|

|In collaboration with Université Laval, the PEP team is offering the Third Edition of the PEP-Laval Intensive Graduate School in Development Economics, to be held at Université Laval, in Quebec City (Canada) in June 2013.
This third edition offers, for the very first time, a component on linking macro and micro simulation models. This is essential to conducting distributive (poverty, inequality, etc.) analysis of the results of macro policy/shock simulations
The program offers three separate courses (it is possible to take one, two or all three courses)
|Upon completion of each of these courses, participants will receive a certificate of continued education from Université Laval. Under certain conditions, the courses can also be credited towards completion of a university degree program.
An attractive feature of this program is that it is based on training material developed in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and other international organizations. It also uses analytical tools and techniques that have been developed by the School’s own teaching team and that are now valued worldwide by development practitioners and analysts.
This includes CGE models, as well as original software and computer programs, such as the well-known Distributive Analysis/Analyse Distributive (DAD) software and the Stata-compatible Distributive Analysis for Stata Package (DASP).
