PhD course in Econometrics, 15 ECTS credits, spring 2021

All lectures are expected to be streamed live online, through Zoom. Apart from traditional white-board lectures, there will also be computer classes to ensure a strong connection to empirical econometric modelling.  
We will be following the book Econometric analysis: 8th Edition. W. H. Greene closely throughout the course. The exam will consist of a number of home assignment involving theoretical matters as well as empirical analyses. Students who have not yet applied to the course should do this asap, directly to the course coordinator (see contact info below).
