### Course Syllabus

#### Abstract

This course provides students with skills in basic econometrics analysis for management and economics studies. The course covers the theoretical aspect of linear and discrete choice models. These models are the most popular ones in econometrics analysis for management and economics studies, and they are frequently used for empirical term papers and bachelor theses. In sum, the course provides a balanced study of applied and theoretical aspects of econometrics, all of which are necessary for basic econometric analysis.

#### Learning Objectives

• The objective of this course is to provide students with the basic knowledge of econometrics. Studies will learn the regression models for cross-sectional data and cover the theory and its applications in economics or management or finance. After successful completion of the course, students will be able to formulate an econometric model and use regression analysis for assessing relationships among variables.

#### Expected Learning Outcomes

• be able to detect the multicollinearity problem
• be able to interpret interaction effects and squared terms
• to be able to detect heteroscedasticity problem
• to be aware of the consequences of the omitted variable bias
• to collect, organise, and analyse data, as well as interpret results from statistical analyses
• to construct, test, and analyse econometric models, using variables and relationships commonly found in the studies of economic and management theory
• to know Gauss-Markov Theorem
• to know how the research questions can be solved using econometrics
• to know how to interpret coefficients of the linear regression model
• to learn how to calculate linear regression coefficients
• to learn how to calculate multivariable regression coefficients
• to learn how to describe and incorporate qualitative variables into the regression models
• to learn how to estimate the model with the binary variable
