Course Description The main objective of the course is to study (under)development challenges using economic theory and quantitative tools. Specifically, the aim is to learn the basic principles of development economics, and develop analytic skills to evaluate development policy and programs, and to draw independent conclusions when confronting development problems, their sometimes ambiguous evidence, and real-life development policy choice. To do so, a discussion of the fundamental economic models will be complemented by applications of modeling and empirical analyses to conduct detailed diagnostics and establish rigorous causal analyses of development outcomes. The course uses also innovative teaching methods; in particular, it includes a flipped classroom section (in collaboration with UNCTAD): students will form groups of 4/5 students and work on projects to develop new business models for achieving sustainable development.
