• Econometric Modelling - Model Specification and Diagnostic Testing,
• Qualitative Response Regression Models,
• Panel Data Regression Models,
• Impact Evaluations Methods, e.g., Difference-in-Difference Models,
• Time Series Econometrics
Connection to Research and Practice
Econometrics gives the students the skills and the knowledge of conducting quantitative research and formulating different questions and hypotheses in such to be verified based on real data. Therefore, the research papers in economics at JIBS that focus on entrepreneurship, renewal, ownership, and other areas will almost always utilize some of the techniques of data analysis presented in this course. This is relevant for the research centers at JIBS, especially for CEnSE. Without the basic understanding of this course’s concepts and empirical methods, bachelor’s students in economics will have difficulty understanding many elements in published quantitative research, and especially when preparing their bachelor’s theses. The course demonstrates how econometric/statistical tools can be applied to economic theory and how they are applied to real-world data.
