Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The objective of this course is to apply econometric methods to real world problems. The emphasis is on teaching econometrics from the perspective of professional users and illustrate how empirical researchers think about and apply econometrics methods. The aim is to equip students with broad and rigorous tools that would allow them to (i) conduct an independent econometric analysis of problems they may encounter in their work and (ii) draw operational and/or policy recommendations where suitable.

Summary

The course will consists of fourteen (14) 90 minutes lectures with at least 20-30 minutes for discussion. The discussion will include a presentation of an individual student or a small team (2 – 3 people). The presentations would apply the methods covered in the readings and class lectures to a particular issue. In addition, there will be 7 practical sessions (seminars) that will focus on application of econometrics methods in Stata (or R on a voluntary basis). Occasionally, we will invite guest lectures to speak on an empirical topic of their choice where they use methods covered in the course.
