Econometrics for business

 

Instructor: Neeraj Hatekar, Director, Department of Economics, University of Mumbai

Econometric analysis is a crucial component of the professional economist’s toolbox, and this course builds on the Foundations Course in Statistics to teach students:

  • How to formulate testable hypotheses from economic theories, and how to test such hypotheses
  • How to “fit” econometric models to the data (commonly called the “specification problem” in econometric analysis) and how to remedy the problems intrinsic to this approach, viz. selection bias, autocorrelation, heteroscedasticity, multicollinearity, and endogeneity
  • How to estimate simultaneous equations systems
  • How to work with binary dependent variables in a logistic regression framework
  • How to use the statistical software R to implement various kinds of econometric estimation
