Class Details

Macroeconomics and related fields in international finance and development have evolved specialized empirical techniques, known generally as macroeconometrics, which are designed to meet the practical challenges that the data and the empirical questions pose in these fields. The course will introduce the theory and application of these techniques, and students will learn how to implement these techniques using real world data to address practical questions drawn from the fields of macro, international finance and development. Topics to which these techniques will be applied include business cycle analysis, sources of exchange rate volatility and determinants of long run economic growth. The course is also available to undergraduates with permission of the instructor. Undergraduates with strong math backgrounds may wish to enroll directly in Econ 471 in lieu of this course. However, those seeking a transition course may wish to enroll in this course prior to taking Econ 471.
