Economics, Methods for Analysis in Economics and Finance, Second Cycle, 7.5 Credits

Analytical work in economics and finance often combines economic theory, economic models and one or multiple empirical approaches. Statistical analysis can be pointless if not supported by critical appraisal and understanding of data and by a careful and creative empirical identification strategy. To make results useful to decision makers it is often important to demonstrate how they can be related to relevant decision problems, for instance by use of cost-benefit analysis or investment assessment. This course is based on workshops in which the choice of methods and mix of methods in research papers on various topics are studied and discussed.
