Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

This course is a follow-up to Applied Microeconometrics I. At the end of the course students will be able to master a number of empirical tools that can be used to analyze the impact of public policies and business strategies. The course is especially suitable for students who want to address an empirical question in their master’s thesis.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

In Applied Microeconometrics I students learn the basic microeconometric tools and they get familiar with the econometric software. Applied Microeconometrics II has a more practical flavor. The students will build up on their knowledge of econometrics and economic theory in order to tackle a number of relevant empirical questions. The course will be a combination of (i) main lectures on some relevant topics that were not covered in Applied Microeconometrics I, (ii) presentation and discussion by students of research papers and (iii) problem sets. Please note that given nature of the course, class attendance is essential.
