Since 2006 the Department of Economics of the University of Crete is successfully running its Advanced Summer School in Economics and Econometrics-ASSEE. From 2015 the summer course is co-organized with the Department of Agricultural Economics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
ASSEE is one of the few summer courses in the world combining high quality morning lectures with extensive computer practicals in the afternoon. World leading scholars teach every year a different topic in economics and/or econometrics.
ASSEE takes place every year in Rethymno, which is a lovely small town located in the western part of the island of Crete, Greece. The period in which the course takes place every year is the last part of July and beginning of August: it's a wonderful period in Crete, as the weather starts being very generous with sunny and warm days.
During the course you will be given the chance to interact with students from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures, both in and out of class. You will be exposed to a variety of insights and opinions, and form friendships and networks that span the globe.
"The summer school provided the opportunity to learn directly from a leading contributor to an important field of econometrics. I would definitely recommend it to economists looking to upgrade their quantitative skills in a short period of time." Speigner Bradley, Bank of England, UK
