  • Title: Alumni Placement - Master in Economics - Barcelona GSE
    Descriptive info: The Economics program was a splendid preparation for my PhD work.. I benefitted tremendously from both the conceptual comprehension and the technical rigor of the program, which helped smooth the transition from the Master level to the PhD level.. Toni Anhert 08.. PhD Student.. London School of Economics.. Class of 2012.. Marcos Casarin.. Economist.. Oxford Economics.. As an economist within the Global macro forecasting team, my main responsibility is to monitor and forecast the economies of Brazil and Portugal.. I use a lot of things from the master in my day-to-day work.. After working with applied macroeconomics I can say that all the theory I learnt at Barcelona GSE has provided me with the ability to produce high-quality economic analysis in the real world.. Eye on Alumni Interview.. Jordi Galimany.. Macroeconomic Analyst.. Banc Sabadell.. My main responsibilities in Banc Sabadell involve analyzing the present economic situation of Spain and UK and submitting reports on different areas related with these countries.. This includes studying the financial markets (fixed income and forex mainly) as well as the macroeconomic fundamentals of each country and the global implications of their policy.. Also, we take care of forecasting several economic and financial variables and give our opinion and recommendations about different investment opportunities.. The skill I got from Barcelona GSE that I find most useful for my current job is the capacity to synthesize and manage many economic data and other information that is given to us.. Not to mention all the economic knowledge, that one way or another is applicable in many cases of study.. In the master I learned to work methodically and under pressure, and now I realize that this background has helped me in this job.. On the other hand, the fact that nowadays the economy, the financial markets and the policy (both fiscal and monetary) is very much intertwined, makes teamworking a necessary skill.. Each and every point of view in our research team is relevant and contributes to the group strategy.. Alejandra Villegas.. Senior Analyst.. Central Bank of Bolivia.. After I completed the master, I was surprised with the diversity of tools I could apply to improve my work and all the different applications I can give to the data produced and gathered by the Central Bank.. In fact, I am planning to make some research of an experimental approach about the Central Bank s communication strategies and its effect over Bolivian financial markets.. Class of 2011.. Ramon de la Rosa.. Bank of Mexico, Economic Research Division.. I started working at the Bank of Mexico in 2007 as an analyst.. My main tasks were to generate statistical information and to support the preparation of institutional presentations.. After graduating from Barcelona GSE in 2011, I returned to the Central Bank as an economist, and thanks to knowledge I acquired during the master, especially in macroeconomics and banking, my responsibilities have changed.. Now, I carry out both applied research and economic analysis.. In the area of economic research, I worked on the construction of a Financial Conditions Index for Mexico, and now I am working on a study to find out the relevance of the Banking transmission channel for the Mexican monetary policy.. In the area of economic analysis, I am elaborating the weekly analysis of the Central Bank s balance sheet public report, and I am conducting the analysis of monetary aggregates and financial indicators for the Monetary Policy Committee s report.. Hamed Faquiryan.. Research Associate.. United States Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.. I am a Research Associate in the Risk-Modeling and Financial Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.. At the FRBSF I m assigned two economists who direct my responsibilities and guide any independent research I might undertake.. The majority of my time is spent coding, cleaning and analyzing confidential data which is then incorporated into academic or policy research.. In addition to these responsibilities, I m also given a great deal of latitude in discovering and pursuing my own research interests.. Daniel-Oliver Garcia-Macia.. Stanford University.. After completing the Master in Economics at the Barcelona GSE, I was admitted at the Stanford University PhD program in Economics, among other top-tier American economics departments.. I chose Stanford mainly because its faculty features some of the globally most prominent researchers in my fields of interest: Macroeconomics and Economic Growth.. Based upon my own experience, I would strongly encourage all students who want to  ...   theory, but with a clearer sense that I wanted to pursue a PhD and to do research.. Class of 2009.. Natasa Jemec.. Analyst, Analysis and Research Department.. Bank of Slovenia.. Two recent research projects: Estimating output gap for Slovenia using production function approach and Analysis of inflation perceptions.. Writing articles for publications Economic Indicators of International Economy (GDP, inflation, interest rates figures.. ), Monthly Bulletins and Price Stability Reports.. Covering fields of International Economy (GDP, inflation, interest rates figures.. ), Competitiveness of Slovenian economy (describing the movement of real and nominal effective exchange rate) and Real sector (description of development of GDP components).. James Marrone.. Research Assistant.. Federal Reserve Board of Governors.. My job consists of academic research, policy memos for the Federal Reserve governors, and peer review of other economists work for conferences or journals.. Most of my research revolves around finance and credit risk.. Right now I have projects regarding the variance risk premium, granularity of loan portfolios and contagion in financial markets.. Class of 2008.. Claire André.. French Direction of Treasury Economic Policy.. The French government has several Regional Economic Services in developing countries to promote cooperation and provide a link with the French chairs in multilateral organizations such as the IADB or the IMF.. My office is based in Panama and I am in charge of Panama, the Andean and Caribbean countries.. My everyday job consists of analyzing the macroeconomic situation of these countries and addressing some more structural issues.. For instance, I have been working on the impact of the international economic crisis on the region: through which channels are countries affected? To what extent are they affected? Which measures did they implement to mitigate the impact of the crisis? In order to prepare those reports for the French government, I have to travel regularly to these countries.. During those missions, I meet with Ministers, Central Bank governors, economists, and multilateral organizations representatives to assess the situation of each country.. Jonathan Hersh.. PhD student.. Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania.. For the past year I ve worked as a research assistant for Emily Oster at the Becker Center at the University of Chicago.. It s been a tremendous experience.. We ve been researching the effect of peer networks on technology adoption and education in India.. Next year I will be entering the doctoral program in Applied Economics at the University of Pennsylvania in the Wharton School.. I plan to focus on labor, urban, development, and economic history.. Niels Krieghoff.. Economic History.. My research focuses on banking regulation in the United States and Germany between 1930 and 1960.. Just recently I read a newspaper accounts stemming from the aftermath of the German financial crisis of 1931.. If I hadn t known that it was a piece from that time, I would certainly have thought that it was an article from today s times.. Much the same issues they were discussing back then, such as banker s bonuses, excessive risk-taking, a lack of business-ethics, etc.. , are being discussed today as well.. History doesn t repeat, but it does rhyme indeed.. alumni top.. - Class of 2013.. Career paths for Economics graduates..
