Teaching by the Economic Modeling of Agricultural System Group
We offer our students courses at master level on the state-of-the-art of quantitative economic modeling of agri-food systems, allowing for hands-on experience with economic models developed and applied by us. After the successful participation in the courses offered by the Economic Modeling group, students can be granted the minor specialization "Economic modeling" (18 ECTS in total required).
- Summer term:
- Winter term:
Applied Modelling of Agricultural Systems, APO-220, 4 SWS, 6 ECTS: this project based course offers students to develop together as a group their own research project. That includes deciding upon the real-world problem to analyze quantitatively, selecting an appropriate economic model, collecting the data and conduct liter ature research, coordinating tasks, working groups and deliverables. Our staff actively supports that process and the execution of the project.
We plan to offer from 2019 onwards additionally a one-week block course on advanced GAMS modeling in autumn as part of the Doctoral Certificate Progam in Agricultural Economics" jointly managed by German speaking universities with an agricultural economics programs. That course will also be open for our master students.
