CONTENT, ASSESSMENT AND WORKLOAD
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.
