EGMD offers three fundamental courses for graduate/post-graduate students interested in treating the phenomenon of large-scale endogenous economic growth from the point of view of formal mathematics. Each of these one-week courses will help the students understand drivers of economic growth, and will train them to make large-scale decisions.
Each course ends with an examination. After the examination the students will receive an official EGMD certificate.

EGMD offers a rich social program – excursions all over Moscow, theaters, museums, etc.

EGMD organizers will arrange housing in a good-quality university hostel for the students.


Moscow is in the heart of Russia. It is not only the capital and the largest city in Europe – for hundreds of years Moscow has been the cultural, business and scientific center of Russia. The Kremlin, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Red Square, the "Seven Sisters", the Ostankino Tower and other historical places situated in Moscow are known all over the world. Museums and galleries, theatres and concerts are waiting to be discovered for people coming to Moscow. There is a vibrant night life in Moscow – young people have a lot to choose from – jazz music, house music, latino night clubs, bars and restaurants - all located in the downtown area of Moscow.

Moscow is a very green city – there are 96 parks and 18 gardens, including 4 botanical gardens. Moscow lies in the continental climate zone, therefore the summer is comfortably warm with average temperatures of around 22 C (72 F).
