Course Objective

The student learns how to translate their econometric, data science and
numerical skills in solving real-life data problems and developing
practical solutions by working in a team. Given the limited number of
weeks available for the work on this practical case, students also learn
how to work efficiently, in an organised way and under time-pressure.

presentation and a report of maximum 12 pages.
