Course description


This is a new, advanced Ph.D. course in empirical research methods (applied econometrics), geared towards students doing or wanting to do applied research. We will assume you have taken the core graduate courses in econometrics and have a working knowledge of Stata. Other than that, each topic will assume relatively little prior knowledge, but will be taught at high speed. Interested faculty is welcome to attend the course.





Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 17:10 (sharp) to 19:00


Room 20.101
