didaktisches Konzept

The lectures are complemented by a practical, computer-based tutorial class that makes frequent use of econometric software, in particular Econometric Views (EViews). Thereby, various techniques of econometric analysis are employed. By utilizing the original datasets taken from scientific literature and from studies conducted by the German central bank, empirical results are replicated and subjected to a sensitivity analysis with respect to their content and methodology. Besides imparting fundamental theoretical and empirical knowledge, the main goal of the course is to introduce students to conducting their own scientific research in the field of international capital movements. Finally, students are taught how to work with scientific analysis software.
