Math Bootcamp

EI071 Mathematics and Statistics for Economists


A math refresher course (affectionately known as the "math bootcamp") to be taken before the beginning of the first semester.

The aim of the course is to give the incoming Master students in Economics the necessary mathematical and statistical skills to begin the core first-year courses. We will go over linear algebra, analysis, optimisation, probability and statistics. An introduction to the different software needed, such as Latex and Stata, will also be given. This three-week course consists of daily lectures and problem-solving sessions designed to bring students from heterogeneous academic backgrounds up to speed in terms of the quantitative methods used in economics.

The course is compulsory and credited (6 ECTS) for the Master students in International and Development Economics, but is optional and non-credited for the MAS students in Sustainable Finance and Development.

The course will be organized from Monday 19 August to Friday 6 September 2024 (3 weeks).
The lectures will take place:
•    Week 1 (19/08 – 23/08): mornings (from 8:30 to 12:00) and afternoons (from 13:30 to 17:00)
•    Week 2 (26/08 – 30/09): mornings (from 8:30 to 12:00)
•    Week 3 (02/09 – 06/09): mornings (from 8:30 to 12:00)
