The persistence of Inequality Analysis at Central European University (CEU) within nations and across nations demands innovative policy responses. From the World Bank to the United Nations to governments throughout the world, a greater understanding of wealth distribution is a necessary skill in today’s policy landscape. To contribute to addressing this need, Central European University and Bard College’s Levy Economics Institute are pairing in a joint Advanced Certificate in Inequality Analysis that will take place at the Levy Institute and CEU’s Extension site in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
Students obtain this certificate through a minimum of 12 credits in Masters level courses that leverage the combined expertise currently offered on both campuses. The certificate requires a minimum of 12 credits with the following distributions:
CEU-Bard Advanced Certificate
- Minimum two credits in Applied Microeconomics
- Minimum two credits on Poverty, Inequality and Wealth
- Minimum two credits on Econometrics
- Minimum two credits on themes related to income and wealth: development, geographies, gender, labor
Courses will be offered by CEU and Bard faculty and to earn a certificate each student must take courses offered by each. To ensure curricular coherence, each student will be required to submit a program proposal and obtain approval for their program adviser.
