Practical Case Study: Real-life Modelling in Econometrics and Data Science


Course Objective

This course in the minor Applied Econometrics is targeted at both
econometrics and non-econometrics students. The objectives are to work
together in a group, to describe methods and results in a report and
presentation, to learn to perform empirical research and to apply the
material of the courses in the periods 3.1 and 3.2 of the minor Applied

Course Content

Case studies are carried out by teams of a heterogeneous group of
students, coming from different study backgrounds. The students must
write case reports and present their results. The groups compete to come
up with the best specification of an econometric model.

Teaching Methods

Working groups of students.

Method of Assessment

Presentation and written report. At the end of the course each group
must submit a final report (and the computer code that they used), and
each group must give an oral presentation. The grade is mainly based on
the final report, where only exceptional computer code and/or an
exceptional oral presentation (in a good or bad sense) may lead to a
(positive or negative) adaptation of the grade.
