CEMFI is an institution created by the Bank of Spain in 1987 with the aim of developing graduate education and research in economics.
CEMFI offers, jointly with Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo (UIMP), a high-quality graduate program leading to the official degrees of Master in Economics and Finance and PhD in Economics. In addition, we organize a Summer School every year offering intensive courses for those who want to receive a first-hand update of their training from professors with recognized research proficiency in the corresponding fields of study.
Foreign students who need a visa have access to the services of a specialized law firm.
Each student is assigned a tutor who provides academic and personal counseling. Specific faculty members coordinate the assignment of summer internships and master thesis supervision, as well as placement.
CEMFI provides admitted students with a list of inexpensive hostels for short-term stays while looking for accommodation. We also provide information on rental agencies with English-speaking staff. We facilitate contact with owners who traditionally rent apartments to our students and provide incoming students with the email addresses of other CEMFI students, so that they can coordinate before arriving in Madrid.
CEMFI Summer School participants who need hotel accommodation in Madrid are advised to book their rooms well in advance due to the large amount of visitors the city receives at the end of the summer.
CEMFI's library contains the most relevant books and journals and it provides electronic access (via JSTOR) to the complete series of the most relevant scientific journals in economics. CEMFI students can also visit the library of the Bank of Spain, which is specialized in economics and offers excellent coverage of publications devoted to monetary and banking topics.
CEMFI has a computer lab that Summer School participants can access.
There is a computer room and a cluster for intensive data computing. Students who request it are provided with their own portable computer. All computers have the specialized software needed for the program of study installed or have access through a server.
