The course is about application of statistical tools, especially regression analysis, for estimating economic relationship sand testing economic hypotheses. Econometrics is the study of relationship among economic variables, primarily through the use of computer-calculated regression equations. This one-semester, Master's-level course is designed to give students a basic introduction to techniques of regression analysis used in economics, business, and finance. Throughout the semester, issues of specification, interpretation, and evaluation of econometric models will be emphasized in the context of hands-on practical exercises and using state-of-the-art computer resources.
