Training Programs
 
  JCER provides a training program for junior staff delegates mainly from corporate members to develop their skills as business economists through practical training in economic analysis and forecasting, and in financial research. There are three types of programs: a one-year and two-year courses for "Economic Forecasting" and a one-year course for "Financial Research". JCER's training program has been active for almost three decades and has sent over 1400 graduates back into society to assume prominent roles in business economics.
Economic Forecasting Team
In the first quarter of the program (April to June), the trainees master the fundamentals of economic analysis and forecasting. An intensive 250-hour study curriculum covers 20 disciplines, including statistics, econometrics, micro- and macro-economics. The degree of difficulty of these courses is equivalent to that of advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate level courses at a university economics department. Professors from renowned universities as well as economic specialists in their respective fields give the lectures.

Delegated trainees, upon completion of their basic study are assigned to either the short-, medium- or long-term economic forecasting team. Forecasts are released quarterly for the short-term forecast group, and once a year for the medium and long- term forecast groups. A research monitor is assigned to supervise the progress of each group.
Financial Research Team
Based in detailed data systems, the team conducts an analysis of the current state of financial institution management and financial systems, and market analysis encompassing interest rates and exchange rates. participants acquire the ability to analyze management from a micro-economic perspective coupled with macro-economic analysis skills. In the first quarter of the program (April to June), the trainees master the fundamental financial theory and economy. After the first quarter term, they analyze the behavior of financial market and the problem of the financial system.
Overseas Training
As an integral part of the training program, JCER sends missions of trainees and researchers every year to prominent overseas research institutions and international organizations such as the Conference Board to exchange opinions on macroeconomic trends and their views of the future.

Through these activities, the participants have a unique opportunity to develop personal and business relationships with other trainees and researchers from different industries, backgrounds and experiences.
