Congratulations to CMCI MA alumnus Alejandro Librero, who has just published an academic article on urban cultural economics. His undergraduate dissertation as a business administration student at Carlos III University in Madrid was updated along with his tutor, Pedro Gomes, and the resulting article will feature in the next issue of the Journal of Cultural Economics.
‘Evaluating Three Decades of the European Capital of Culture Programme: A Difference-in-Differences Approach’, makes use of econometric tools to measure the economic impact of hosting the European Capital of Culture, with findings pointing towards an increased GDP per capita in cities hosting the cultural event.

Publishing at such an early stage of a career is unusual, so special congratulations to Alejandro: his article is now being recommended to his successor students at CMCI.
