Intermediate Econometrics

when 15 August 2016 - 26 August 2016
language English
duration 2 weeks
fee GBP 1435

The typical introductory econometrics course is mostly confined to the Classical Linear Regression Model. It may also cover a few advanced topics, but with eclectic choice and superficial treatment. This course aims to build a solid, comprehensive understanding of the use of the regression model when one progresses from the CLRM, with its strong and unrealistic assumptions, and addresses the issues that researchers encounter in practice.

Course leader

Dr Christopher Dougherty

Target group

This course is designed for those who have already taken an introductory course covering the CLRM and need to develop their skills to the next level. The course is not suitable for those whose only exposure to econometrics has been as part of a statistics course.

Course aim

Students will have an advanced understanding of the use of the regression model beyond the CLRM. They should then be able to apply econometric techniques to real-world issues. The course also serves as preparation for an MSc level econometrics course.

Credits info

Students who wish to receive credit for their course will need to contact either their Study Abroad Office or the office in their university that deals with external credit. It is up to students' home institutions as to how much credit is awarded but the Methods Programme Office is happy to provide any necessary information to your registry or academic advisor, to help them evaluate the courses
