Econometrics BEA342




This unit provides you with the techniques required to quantify the magnitude, strength and form of relationships between variables and the strategies that you will need to employ to use these techniques effectively. More specifically, you will examine the theory and use of the Classical Linear Regression Model (CLRM) and intermediate level econometric models, such as: IV, Logit, Panel, ECM, 3SLS, ARIMA. The unit will provide you with the econometric theory to enable you to obtain answers from data using the latest econometrics software.

BEA342 teaches matrix algebra to re-examine the CLRM learnt in BEA242 Introduction to Econometrics. The unit demonstrates how to test violations of its assumptions, their consequences and how to remedy them. It then provides you with the knowledge of how to use a range of econometric models for the analysis of cross-section and time-series data and the ability to obtain answers to research policy questions in economics and finance. A working knowledge of the unit is essential if you intend to pursue a career as a professional economist, financial analyst or business analyst.
