This course is available for in-person and remote (online) learning.

In this course, students will produce a substantial and original piece of research work. This work will be structured with the goal of generating new knowledge while simultaneously aiding students in their ability to conduct and analyse research. The course will be built around recent empirical examples from applied econometrics and techniques in applied econometrics. These examples and the learning of the techniques will help increase students’ understanding of econometric technique and research practice. Building from these case studies, students will work in small research groups to first replicate and, more importantly, extend these case studies in novel ways.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Learn the strengths and weaknesses of various research methodologies in applied econometrics
  2. Critically analyse a series of case studies in applied economics
  3. Learn and develop practical research skills in applied econometrics
  4. Gain hands-on experience of conducting original research and analysis on a case study
  5. Conduct presentation and write a well-structured paper on the case study

Indicative Assessment

  1. Online Quiz (30) [LO 1,2,3]
  2. Three in-class research presentations (10% each) (30) [LO 3,4]
  3. Research paper (4000-5000 words) (40) [LO 1,3,4,5]
