    CEMLA, Banco de la República (Colombia), and International Monetary Fund.
    The course focuses on monetary policy regimes, the mechanism of monetary transmission and the role of monetary policy in macroeconomic stabilization. In addition, it connects theory with empirical evidence and with operational experience, by transmitting the optimization problems and the dilemmas involved in monetary policy decisions.
  • Objective:
    That participants are able to: i) analyze how monetary policy decisions are made in different regimes to achieve price stabilit; ii) determine how these decisions are transmitted to the real economy; iii) evaluate how economic and monetary policy respond to macroeconomic shocks in different monetary policy frameworks.
    The course is designed for low and mid-range professionals interested in understanding and analyzing the application of monetary policy and its interaction with the rest of the economy. Participants must have an advanced degree in economics or an equivalent experience and feel comfortable using Excel and applications based on this program. Considering that Mac operating systems do not work with the Excel applications that will be provided for the analysis, evaluation and simulation of various exercises of macroeconomic dynamics and monetary policy, participants need to bring a laptop with a Windows operating system to the course.
