Learning Outcomes of UE

At the end of the course, students will be able to use econometric techniques in order to analyse relations (models) explaining how variables related to economic or business issues behave. This way, they will test the existence of significant explanatory variables, estimate their impact and forecast variables under interest. The course will also enable them to interpret results and to use them for policy implications in terms of private or public management and of economic policy.

- Problems of multicollinearity, heteroscedasticity and serial correlation : consequences, testing, treating.
