Course objectives

    To be able to estimate rigorously and without distortion, the forecastable impact of a mega event (Olympics, Expo or similar) or to be able to evaluate the validity of estimates produced by others.

How the course is organized

    The course consists in four weeks made of five lectures:
  1. Methods and results supporting mega events
  2. Costs and revenues estimates
  3. Input Output model: Simple Mathematical representation (optional module)
  4. Input Output methods
  5. Guidelines for economic impact evaluation


    Students in tourism, consultants, policy advisers. The basic requisite is intellectual curiosity and rigour. Apart from this there are no requisite expect for a lecture where the basic mathematics of Input-output model are exposed,

How my progress will be tracked
