Economics and Econometrics

This course emphasises the foundations of econometrics and its application to a wide range of topics in economics; among the compulsory modules, estimation and inference in econometrics provides the statistical foundations for a variety of estimating methods and ways of testing economic hypotheses; we span topics from the classical linear regression model to the use of asymptotic methods in econometrics, and classical hypothesis tests; time series econometrics explores techniques for analysing the dynamic processes that are often found in macroeconomics, while empirical methods of economics and finance introduces students to methods for analysing stock market and other financial data; these modules combine to equip students for further study at the doctoral level or for a dynamic career in economic or business research.
