This online programme is an intensive eight-week course which will allow you to explore the foundational principles of economics and learn how to apply them in a policy formulation context.
If you are involved in public policy, then you are likely to encounter professional economists and/or their reports. This course aims to prepare you for this interaction by introducing you to the language and concepts of economics for public policy and by encouraging you to become a critical consumer of economic analysis.
You will learn about what markets can achieve, why they sometimes fail, and what governments can do in response. You will also explore how governments can raise revenue through taxation and alleviate shocks to the macro economy.
You’ll be taught by the world’s leading academics at the Blavatnik School of Government, with a mission to inspire and support better government and public policy around the world. The University of Oxford is ranked #1 globally in the Times Higher Education World University rankings.
