  • Econometrics Training and Evaluation
    the Introduction to Econometrics course The Panel Data Econometrics course combines elements of both Microeconometrics and Time Series Econometrics to cover a more advanced set of topics finishing up by looking at leading edge developments in the field Each course usually consists of theory to help explain the techniques and the underlying principles behind them with the focus as much as possible on the intuition behind the method rather than the algebra class examples to help to reinforce the theory sessions with the course presenter demonstrating worked examples to the participants hands on sessions to allow participants to actively practice the techniques by going through a set of pre prepared examples with a full set of solutions to refer to if needed The courses are run by staff at Cambridge Econometrics who are for the main part involved in applied economics projects often with a policy issue in mind In this respect and in the time available we aim to focus on the intuition and practical use of econometric techniques The courses are not run by academics with little feel for real world policy applications but by practising economists and econometricians Availability of courses If you want to discuss the possibility of running a bespoke course for your organisation or if you are interested in the remote learning option then please contact us using the details below Academic discounts are available Group courses We offer courses on a group basis If you consider you have sufficient people within your organisation to run a group course we have run courses for as few as three people then get in touch and we can discuss your specific needs as a bespoke provision The courses are generally based on one or more of the four core topics which are then modified to suit
