CEMFI Summer School

CEMFI Summer School

The CEMFI Summer School aims to provide practitioners and academics from all over the world with an opportunity to update their training in fields within CEMFI's range of expertise.

A variety of one-week courses are offered each year, during late August and early September.

The courses are taught by leaders in their fields. They are based on innovative teaching practices that combine regular lectures and personalized interaction between the instructor and course participants. Courses typically combine formal lectures, discussion sessions and, in some cases, workshop sessions where some participants can discuss their work. In more applied courses, practical classes outside the regular schedule are organized to provide additional hands-on experience. A course manager is assigned to each course to coordinate all activities.

All courses take place from Monday to Friday between 15:30 and 18:30 CEST. Courses are offered in two formats. Some courses are online with a maximum enrollment of 24 people. Other courses are hybrid. In that case, some participants and the instructor are physically at CEMFI while others join the course online. CEMFI’s classrooms have the equipment required for the broadcasting of the classes and to allow interaction between the professor and online participants. Total enrollment in the hybrid courses is of 30 people. The interaction between the instructor and course participants is complemented with up to two daily hours of office time.
