Monetary Policy Implementation

JVI plans to resume classroom training as soon as the COVID-19 health situation allows. This course is scheduled to take place at JVI, but may have to be delivered virtually in case safe travel to and in-person training in Vienna will not be possible. The decision to offer virtual instead of onsite training, or a combination of the two (hybrid), will be made within two months of the course start date.​
Vaccination against Covid-19 may be required before coming to Vienna.


TARGET GROUP | (i) Junior to mid-level central bank officials working in monetary policy operations; and (ii) officials from central banks or ministries of finance/economy whose responsibilities require, or who have a strong interest in acquiring, a thorough understanding of monetary policy implementation.


DESCRIPTION | The implementation of monetary policy requires both well-defined goals and a consistent set of policy instruments to achieve them. This one-week course will place central banks’ monetary policy operations in the context of the broader monetary policy strategy. It will emphasize the link between policy formulation and implementation, discuss monetary policy objectives and instruments, and explain the functioning of the monetary policy transmission mechanisms. The course will then focus on the operational details of implementing monetary policy, including the interest rate steering approach and the role of a central bank’s balance sheet. Finally, the course will cover specific aspects of monetary policy implementation: liquidity analysis, the operational design of conventional and unconventional monetary policy instruments, the role of foreign exchange interventions, and the consistency of operational frameworks.


OBJECTIVES | Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to: Formulate principles for monetary policy and the implications for monetary operations. Describe monetary policy implementation using an interest rate steering approach, as well as the role of the central bank’s balance sheet. Conduct liquidity analysis. Understand the operational design of monetary policy instruments. Analyze foreign exchange interventions. Assess the consistency of operational frameworks.
