Integrative Practical

2019-2020

Course Objective

The student learns how to apply basic techniques from econometrics,
operations research, and mathematical economics to problems taken from
real life. For this, they first have to model the problem in
mathematical terms, and afterward, decide what techniques are relevant
for the specific problem. Next to this, the student also develops the
ability to work in groups and learns how to write a report in a
scientific style.

Course Content

In this course, students work in groups on a practical case involving
econometrics, mathematical economics, and operations research. The first
week is intended to introduce the projects, the required literature, and
the data if needed. In weeks 2 and 3, there will be meetings to report
the progress.The presentations of the final reports will take place in
week 4.

Teaching Methods

seminars.

Method of Assessment

Presentation and written report.
