Students wanting to participate in the class must either possess a basic understanding of econometrics at Bachelor level or be willing to catch up; econometric concepts will, however, be briefly repeated in a review session. This course will discuss a limited set of academic articles in depth; students are expected to read these articles before class. Furthermore, students are expected to prepare a 20-minute presentation on an assigned paper in a week of their choice, which will be evaluated by their peers for clarity of speech, presentation style and ability to convey the information of the scientific paper. close
