  • Title: GSE Offers Students Tools to Succeed in the New Financial Landscape - Barcelona GSE
    Descriptive info: GSE Offers Students Tools to Succeed in the New Financial Landscape.. 20/03/2009.. GSE Offers Students Tools to Succeed in the New Financial Landscape.. Students who undertake graduate level study in the coming year face a new financial landscape.. Profs.. Xavier Freixas.. ,.. Albert Marcet.. , and.. Juan Carlos Conesa.. discuss how the GSE Master programs are preparing a new wave of graduates to succeed in the emerging economic climate.. Why Study Finance During the Crisis?.. The average Barcelona GSE student is 25 years old, meaning that the current financial crisis is likely the only, and probably the worst, that they have seen in their lifetime.. The changing financial circumstances of the world dictate that new measures are taken to both regulate and reform financial institutions.. What the crisis tells us is that the regulatory measures that we had in place were not the right ones to handle the events that we have witnessed, says Prof.. (UPF-GSE), Director of the.. Master in Finance.. This means that in the next year there will be an increased demand for people to work in central banks and regulatory agencies, and that these people will need to have the skills to understand what banks, financial agencies, and complex leverage entities do, as well as how to regulate them.. (UAB-GSE), Deputy Director of the.. Master in Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets.. , shares this view.. Nowadays the world is going through a serious financial crisis, whose depth and duration is far from being clearly understood.. Studying the causes and nature of this ongoing crisis, together with the analysis of previous episodes, represents a step in the right direction.. We need rigorous thinking based on theoretical and empirical analysis, and the MSc in Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets provides you with the appropriate tools for that.. Out with the Old, In with the New.. (IAE-GSE), Director of the MSc in Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets, says What we have seen from the downfall of many financial institutions is that there was a widespread ignorance among  ...   providing academic rigor and delivering the deep and versatile knowledge and expertise necessary for students professional success.. The Demand for Knowledgeable Analysts.. The lesson of the crisis is that we need, not necessarily.. more.. regulation, but definitely better regulation, says Prof.. Freixas.. To achieve that, we need people who are equipped with the tools to understand and design better regulation practices.. Precisely, the tools offered in rigorous Master programs like those at the GSE provide a good theoretical or stochastic background and the skills to succeed in a financial institution.. According to Prof.. Conesa, Graduates with this understanding will be in high demand in government agencies, central banks, and regulatory institutions, all of which will be recruiting fresh faces and ideas in the coming years.. There will be a skill premium for individuals be able to think deeply about what banks do, what is their role in society, and how to prevent economic debauchles and improve the current economic situation.. Nowadays, more than ever, the value of a good central bank or regulatory institution is determined by the value of the team they count on.. For a young, ambitious person to take a year to make a huge investment in his human capital signals that he expects to be in charge and take responsible, informed decisions within a team, says Prof.. This is the essential value of investing in finance studies at the graduate level, and why graduates from the GSE Master programs will continue to form part of an elite contingent of people with the knowledge to understand the financial landscape and the tools to improve it..

  • Title: Two Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors Receive Prestigious ERC Starting Grants - Barcelona GSE
    Descriptive info: Barcelona GSE Professors ERC Starting Grants 2009.. 09/11/2009.. Two Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors Receive Prestigious ERC Starting Grants.. Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors.. Gino Gancia.. and.. Nicola Gennaioli.. (both of them.. CREI.. Researchers) have been selected to receive Starting Grants from the European Research Council (.. ERC.. ) in its 2009 call for proposals.. The ERC Starting Grants support early-career top research leaders who are about to establish or consolidate an independent research career in Europe.. The grants are available to researchers in all fields of science, engineering, and scholarship.. For the Call just concluded the ERC expects to fund some 240 top researchers from the 2,503 proposals submitted for consideration this year, with an estimated total budget of 325 million.. This new wave of grantees follows the 299 researchers who received grants in the first Starting Grant competition in 2007.. Professors Gancia and Gennaioli join four other GSE affiliated professors who received grants from the ERC in 2007 and 2008.. Joachim Voth.. (ICREA-UPF) and.. (CREI) received Advanced Grants, while.. Marta Reynal-Querol.. (UPF) and.. Jan Eeckhout.. (UPF) received Starting Grants.. The selection of another affiliated professor of the Barcelona GSE,.. Antoni CaIvó-Arrnengol.. (UAB), was truncated by his untimely death.. The total number of ERC Grant recipients (6) highlights the outstanding research that takes place in the Barcelona GSE community; as of September 2009, no other institution in Europe counted six grant recipients in Economics.. Gino Gancia investigates Globalization, Optimal Policies and Growth.. Gino Gancia s project Globalization, Optimal Policies and Growth is aimed at studying new challenges to policy-making in a world where markets are increasingly integrated.. The project is articulated along two main lines, Prof.. Gancia said.. The first focuses on optimal competition and IPR (Intellectual Property Rights) policies in open-economy models of endogenous innovation and technology diffusion.. One of the main questions is whether trade liberalization in large developing countries, such as China and India, should be followed by a loosening of global IPR protection, to speed up technology diffusion, or by a tightening, to  ...   the consequences of alternative legal and political institutions, but much remains to be done.. Gennaioli s project will examine the problem from two perspectives: first, how does the quality of a country s national institutions affect its gains from international integration? And second, how does international integration affect a country s institutional reform path?.. We address the first question by studying, both theoretically and empirically, the impact of national institutions on sovereign risk, namely on the risk that a government unilaterally decides ex-post not to honour its financial obligations with foreigners.. While the impact of national institutions on private capital flows has been studied, the role of these same institutions on supporting government debt has so far received scant attention, Prof.. Gennaioli said.. As for the second question, we study the impact of political and financial integration on countries institutional reform.. We model two different motivations towards institutional change in an integrated world: direct confrontation in wars and competition through world financial markets.. The general thrust of these analyses is that institutional reform becomes a strategic variable in international competition, creating cross-country externalities that may shed light on observed patterns of institutional converge, divergence or stagnation, Prof.. We also consider the role of institutional harmonization in supporting economic integration..

During the 2009-10 academic year, he is conducting research at Harvard University.. Gino Gancia in his office at CREI..
