The objective is to provide students with an understanding of simple econometric models and introduce them to empirical work in a critical manner. The main target group is students enrolled in the Bachelor degree program in Social Sciences, Economics and Business who aim to specialize in either Economics, or Management and Applied Economics. Of course, students of other areas of specialization, or enrolled in other degree programs who are interested in empirical methods, are most welcome. However, please check the prerequisites below. The course focuses on econometric theory and applications will be taught in the accompanying intensifying course.
