Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course is aimed to provide students with necessary knowledge of quantitative tools and techniques which allow to conduct the analysis of data in order to make better business decisions. By the end of the course students will be able to build and estimate the quantitative models to test economic theories. The stress in the course is done on the essence of statements, methods and approaches of econometric analysis. The conclusions and proofs of basic formulas and models are given which allows the students to understand the principles of econometric theory development. The main attention is paid to the economic interpretations and applications of the econometric models. The first part of the course is devoted to the cross-section econometrics; the second part – to the time series and panel data econometrics.
