Applied Economic Policy Course

The 7-week Applied Economic Policy (AEP) course is offered to young officials (normally 25-35 years of age) with a university degree in economics or a related field and two or more years of professional experience in the public sector. The course is taught in English and all applicants must provide proof that their English language skills are sufficient to undertake a course of study in English.

The 2017 course will take place from May 29 - July 14.

The course is comprehensive, comprising macroeconomics, financial sector issues, financial programming, trade policy, and aspects of the Austrian political and economic system.

It is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the many facets of economic policymaking, to strengthen their analytical skills, and to enable them to formulate economic policy recommendations and advice. The structure and content of the course is rigorous, and applicants must be highly motivated individuals with a university degree in economics or a related field, a minimum of two years’ professional experience, and a good command of the English language. Only individuals who are employed in the public sector are eligible to apply.

The AEP course is taught by the JVI’s sponsoring members, with all lecturers teaching subjects relevant to their organization’s area of expertise. Most lecturers are practitioners from member organizations, and most lectures cover both practical and theoretical aspects of policy formulation. Most segments include small group workshops, case studies, and participant presentations.

Participants are accommodated in the JVI Residence free of charge and receive a modest daily living allowance.
