In case of conflicting information consider the Sisu/Courses/Moodle pages the primary source of information.

The goal of the course is to provide an introduction to the methods of modern applied, quantitative macroeconomics. The course builds on existing dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. The aim is to learn to solve the model and to calibrate the model parameters, and to apply them in analyzing macroeconomic questions.

  • Completion method: contact teaching
  • Schedule: can be found in Course Page and Sisu
  • Study materials: can be found in Moodle
    • A link and a Moodle course key will be sent by email before the course starts and/or they will be provided on the Courses page: you can view the information on this site without logging in or registering, but some of the content added by teachers to course pages may be available to course participants only, for example Moodle course enrolment key.
