Modules

This course aims to equip MSs Economics students with a sound understanding of the econometric methods used in empirical analysis, including the use of appropriate data and methods to estimate economic relationships informed by economic theory, testing of hypotheses derived from theoretical predictions, and making reliable and verifiable inferences based on sample data. By studying this course, students will be able to understand the different types of data-generating processes, the different types of data used in economic analysis, the strengths and weaknesses of different estimations methods, and the linkages between theory and evidence. Overall, the learning journey will enable students to produce empirical research outputs, which may include reports, essays, dissertations and even articles that utilise data to address a theoretical and practical issue in economics or related disciplines. As such, this course also aims to consolidate the student learning in other taught modules of the MSc Economics program.
