Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Formally analyze advanced econometric models;
2. Apply, interpret, and assess advanced econometric theory and methods of estimation;
3. Write reports on analyses of mathematical assignments;
4. Write reports on analyses of empirical assignments using a computing environment such as MATLAB.
Omschrijving The course gives an advanced treatment of econometric theory and methods.
The first part covers least squares estimation. Both finite and large sample properties and inference are discussed. The second part covers generalized method of moments estimation. The discussion encompasses different estimators, large sample properties and testing. The last part covers extremum estimators. The main focus is on large sample properties and testing. Additionally, computational aspects will be addressed.
Mathematical and computational skills play an important role. The course provides feedback on written reports about assignments.
