The Guatemalan Econometric Study Group (GESG) is a network of academics and practitioners dedicated to share research and ideas in the field of econometrics. It is an independent non-profit membership organization, housed at the School of Business at Universidad Francisco Marroquín. GESG is committed to promoting and expanding research in econometrics by organizing conferences and seminars. More specifically, the GESG helps to:
a) promote collegial interaction among econometricians in Guatemala
b) provide a regular forum for econometricians to present their research
c) motivate young scholars by providing them with an opportunity to talk about their proposed work
d) invite key speakers from other countries to give local researchers an opportunity to meet and interact with foreign experts in econometrics.
