Course Synopsis

The Course ‘Econometric Theory and Methods’ plays a significant role in learning econometrics techniques and resolving the economic problems of an economy. The objective of the course is to make the student understand an advanced treatment of econometric theory and methods for cross-sectional, panel (or longitudinal), and time-series data sets. The Course will focus on modern econometric techniques and its practical applications.

Course Learning Outcomes

The course will enable the student to understand:  linear and Non-linear regression models, their estimation and inference  stationary and Non-stationary time Series models and their main features  estimation of simultaneous equations and their applications in microeconomics and macroeconomics  estimation techniques of Pooled time series and Cross section data and their application  econometric model for estimating an economic model under certain specific situation
