Course Categorization and Progression

An Indicative Guide to Choosing the Right Course

The following two tables provide a listing of a number of courses offered at the Joint Vienna Institute.

The first table focuses on courses offered by the IMF Institute for Capacity Development, grouping them into major categories while at the same time indicating their level. This provides an illustrative path that could be taken by country officials to progress from the introductory course in each category to the advanced level offerings, giving them an idea of which courses should be taken first. To the extent that there may be several courses in one category at the same level, an attempt has been made to put broader courses first. Depending on their area of specialization, participants should choose those courses that fit their needs most.

The second table focuses on courses offered by the Austrian Authorities—the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Oesterreichische Nationalbank—the JVI, and other training departments of the IMF. This table simply groups courses into major categories by each respective organization, as the majority are of an intermediate level, giving users a useful overview of what topics are covered.

Courses offered by Contributing Members—the EBRD, EIB, OECD, World Bank, and WTO are not represented in the tables. They are mostly by invitation.
