3. Course contents *

Applied Econometrics is designed as an advanced course in econometrics. The goal of this course is to further broaden the understanding of methods and practical use of econometrics such that: you can apply these tools to modelling, estimation, inference, and forecasting in the context of real world economic problems; you are able to critically evaluate policy oriented and scientific work using standard econometric tools; you have a foundation for further study of more advanced econometric methods. The course is not theorem-proof driven, but emphasizes motivation, understanding, implementation, and interpretation.
