Course Syllabus

Abstract

Course Pre-requisites. Statistics, Mathematics for Economists, Introduction to Economics. Course description: The Elements of Econometrics is an introductory full year course for the 3-rd year ICEF students. The course is taught in English. 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 actual Economic data, in particular recent data for Russian economy, is used for interpretations and applications. The first part of the course is devoted to the cross-section econometrics; the second part – to the time series and panel data econometrics.
