The course program has three sections. The Core Courses comprise Frontiers in Macroeconomics, Frontiers in Microeconomics and Frontiers in Econometrics. Every course is organized as compact course extending over three or four days (every day has six teaching hours of 45 minutes). Within the Special Courses internationally renowned researchers provide an overview of their respective fields of research. According to the basic idea underlying the Workshops, doctoral students present their research projects and obtain feedback from experienced researchers.
