empfohlenes Vorwissen

Basic knowledge of econometric methods as, for example, taught in the module "Methoden der Ökonometrie" as well as good knowledge of mathematical statistics (e.g., distributions) and mathematics (e.g., matrices). Some recap will be offered as needed.

Abstract

The goal of the course is to provide students with broad knowledge regarding core as well as more recent econometric methods, with a particular focus on their formal properties.
