Exercise Sessions:



Knowledge of calculus, linear algebra, statistics and probability theory as taught in the first three semesters of the bachelor program in economics.

Qualification Target

The course enables students to develop a deep understanding of linear regression methods and involves an intuitive and applied presentation of applied econometrics with reference to examples used in the Economics literature. Additionally, analysis of cross-sectional data and time series data at the graduate level will be presented.

Course Description

The course provides an up-to-date introduction into econometrics at the level of Wooldridge's textbook on “Introductory Econometrics – A Modern Approach”. The course will review basic concepts from calculus, statistics and probability theory, and matrix algebra. Then, the course will give an introduction into regression analysis based on cross sectional data, time series data, and panel data. The course will also cover selected topics in time series analysis and microeconometrics.

The first part of the course is a review, which is not mandatory in the M.Sc. in VWL (PO 2014).
