Please be reminded that the registration for “Macroeconomic Policy for Practitioners” (5130326) as an S2 course only starts on June 12.
It is highly recommended to take this course for economic policy practitioners and those who seek to pursue careers in international organizations.
This course is offered in in-person format for the first time since AY2019.
Mr. Jerry Schiff, former Deputy Director of IMF’s Asia and Pacific Department, will lead this course to analyze real-world policy questions and country cases. Country case studies and current economic news will also be a starting point for class discussions.
The instructor trains students to write a policy memo with policy recommendations and a memo as if employed in a specific economic institution (e.g., a central bank, finance ministry, or international organization).
The one-on-one mock job interview, modeled after job interviews at the IMF and joined by Prof. Nishizawa, will play the role of the final exam.
