This programme is designed to equip you with tools and techniques for investigating important economic issues. It provides a grounding in mathematical and econometric techniques, and goes on to discuss the foundations of microeconomics and macroeconomics and their application to new economic problems.
You will learn to express original ideas in academic papers and to test them with the use of econometrics. The study of econometrics covers linear and dynamic linear regression models, a wide variety of hypothesis tests and techniques for estimating systems of equations. Techniques are illustrated with economic examples, such as models with rational expectations, as well as consumption, production and money demand functions.
