The José M. Berrocal Institute for Economics and Finance (the Berrocal Institute) is a GDB subsidiary created on September 25, 2002 by resolution of the Bank’s Board of Directors. The Berrocal Institute’s key purpose is to recruit young talent to work in the public sector and to help train new government employees by providing them with theoretical knowledge and practical experience in public financing and economic related fields.
The Berrocal Institute endorses scientific research and professional development in the fields of finance, accounting, economy and public administration through two fundamental initiatives: the Grants Program, and the Summer Internship Program.
The Berrocal Institute was created to complement the Bank's mission of promoting economic development by providing specialized training on the theory and practice of public finances and economics to talented young professionals in order to attract them to join the public service.
