Empirical Macroeconomics (MW21.4)

  • Elective within the study programs of Economics (M.Sc.): subject majors "Public Economics" and "Economics & Strategy", “Innovation and Change”, and “World Economy”.
  • In this course we study the most important econometric techniques used in empirical macroeconomics. The goal is to understand basic econometric theory and apply econometric techniques to actual macroeconomic questions. The course includes computer sessions in which you will apply the concepts learned in the lecture. At the end of the course you should be able to do your own applied data analysis. You should be able to get started reading academic papers in empirical macroeconomics and should be familiar with fundamental regression techniques so that you are able to study more advanced topics or specialized techniques on your own.
