Econometric Principles and Data Analysis
This course is designed for the M.Sc. Programme in Mathematics. This course is focused on the importation of mathematical and statistical concepts, theories, methods and limitations into economic and data science and provides an overview of econometric methods and data analysis that allows analysts to better understand their economic/business landscape and to improve their ability to make sound economic/business forecasts. Through hands-on exercises based on the information flow of sample data together with available computing software, e.g., MATLAB, Python and/or R programming languages, participants gain knowledge of the practical elements of applied econometric analysis. The overall aim is to sharpen the quantitative, numerical, statistical and analytical skills of participants in dealing with real world examples and issues related to business and economic models.
