Specialist workshop on Bayesian macroeconomics at Central Bank of Malta

A three-day specialist workshop on Bayesian macroeconomics was organised by the Central Bank of Malta in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), as one of several educational initiatives aimed at furthering the professional development of the Bank's own staff.

The course was delivered by Dr Haroon Mumtaz, Professor of Economics at the School of Economics and Finance at Queen Mary University of London. Prior to joining QMUL, Professor Mumtaz worked at the Bank of England and the London Business School. He has published various studies in specialized peer-reviewed academic journals, including the Journal of Monetary Economics, Macroeconomic Dynamics, Review of Economic Dynamics, International Journal of Forecasting and the Journal of Money, Credit and Banking.

The workshop combined both theoretical and practical sessions. Staff from the Research Department, the Economic Analysis Department, Financial Stability Department and the Governor’s Office benefitted from this training initiative.

The Central Bank of Malta is aiming to becoming a regional hub of specialist teaching, training and research excellence through its expanding network of cooperation agreements with high-ranking international academic institutions. Further collaboration with QMUL, including the provision of specialized workshops, internships and a visitor academic programme are planned for next year.
