The econometrics teaching program is offered in a cycle over 3 terms. In Econometrics I, the foundations of the subject are dealt with: causality, correlation, assumptions of the linear regression model, OLS estimation, asymptotic tests, misspecification, outliers, heteroskedasticity and an introduction to E-views. In Econometrics II, advanced subjects are covered: Time series analysis, endogeneity, instrumental variable estimation, panel data and limited dependent variable models. In Applied Econometrics, a deeper analysis of selected topics is offered and students are required to write an empirical, applied-econometric essay.
