Econometric Methods (7310AFE)

The main objective of this course is to provide students with a practical, working knowledge of basic econometrics and time series analysis. The course addresses the following central question: What are econometric techniques of analysis and how can they be used for empirically evaluating various relationships in economics and finance. It is concerned with the strategies that lead to effective use of econometric techniques. This course will train students in estimating and testing the suitability of selected econometric and time series models, and in using the models to produce quantitative forecasts for informed decision making. Students will be introduced to the econometric and time series software package, EVIEWS, to perform appropriate econometric analyses using cross-sectional and time series data and present an empirical report on the results in a coherent, cogent manner.
