The GIBS /Economic Modelling Academy (EMA) partnership recognises the importance of economic modelling as advanced analytical and decision-making tools for forward looking entities to ensure well-trained, knowledgeable, and responsible leadership. EMA provides focused, applied and comprehensive training to enable leaders to better understand and use economic models more productively and skilfully.
Use economic models to determine how poverty and inequality impact and are impacted by economic decisions. Enhance your ability to think strategically by seeing the bigger picture conditions within which your company, community and country must globally contend.
This hands-on course provides practical applications of modelling at the nexus of market economies, poverty, and inequality. Advanced state-of-art poverty-inequality models are used to explain the link between household poverty and inequality, and macroeconomics, industrial transformation, taxation, social policy, and other critical economic contexts.
The models used in this course are demystified and made accessible to enhance your critical and strategic thinking, and evidence-based decision making. By learning to use these advanced analytical tools you will be able to assess economic performance, see how successful outcomes rely on good policy design, design alternative policies, forecast impact, and generate evidence-based policy and business decisions.
