New Applied Development Economics online microprogram begins January 29

January 24, 2018

PEP’s new online distance-learning courses in Applied Development Economics begin January 29, 2018.

In collaboration with Université Laval in Canada, the Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) developed a three-course (nine credits) microprogram in Applied Development Economics. It will be offered exclusively via online distance-learning classes from January 29 to April 15, 2018.

171 students from 40 developing countries are registered for the first session. A second session is already planned for 2019.

Luca Tiberti, PEP Research Director for Microeconomic Analysis and assistant professor for the Economics Department at Université Laval, is responsible for course leadership.

The three courses, offered in English and French, are:

Course 1:        Computable General Equilibrium Modelling
Course 2:        Policy Impact Analysis
Course 3:        Measuring and Alleviating Poverty and Inequality

On successful completion of each course, Université Laval will provide students with a certificate of completion. Université Laval will award a graduate microprogram certificate to students who complete all three courses within a maximum of three years.
