Main goals
This course has three main goals:
1. To explain the summer report requirement;
2. To present this requirement through the lens of the three main areas of economic research;
3. To provide guidance, beyond the summer report, on how to start a thesis project, and specifically on how to conceive, write and publish a paper in economics.

The course will have four main sections. The first is an introductory lecture specifically focused on the summer report requirement. The next three lectures will move to the second and third goals from the perspectives of Macroeconomics (Jesus Bueren), Microecononics
(Zeinab Aboutalebi) and Econometrics (Thomas Crossley), with a particular attention on how to integrate theoretical and empirical work.

In addition to the lectures, the faculty members will have office hours to meet with students to discuss the requirement and specific research ideas.

Meeting times for classes and office hours will be posted on Brightspace.

This is no exam. Attendance is required.
