Scientific Disciplinary Sector (SSD)

SECS-P/05 - ECONOMETRICS

Period

Secondo semestre (lauree magistrali) dal Feb 27, 2023 al May 19, 2023.

Learning objectives

The course provides an overview of the main econometric tools, with particular emphasis on economic applications, developed interactively using professional packages. The program covers standard econometric models (OLS regression and its diagnostics) as well as more advanced models for the analysis of cross-sectional, time series and panel data (IV, probit, tobit, random and fixed effects). Particular attention will be given to the intuition behind each topic, in addition to more formal issues. Towards the end of the course a voluntary assignment will be proposed, with the aim of translating research questions into empirical analyses, applying on real data the tools learnt in class, and stimulating discussion among students. At the end of the course, students should be able to: i) read and critically interpret empirical works developed by other researchers, ii) manage small and large datasets in order to extract useful information, and iii) design and implement on their own empirical analyses based on real data.

Prerequisites and basic notions

Working knowledge of basic mathematics and statistics is recommended.

Didactic methods

Frontal teaching. Lectures include real examples interactively developed using the data management free software R.

Learning assessment procedures

The exam is made of one written essay and one individual homework. No oral integration is planned.
The written essay lasts one hour and thirty minutes and covers the whole program of the course. Use of handheld calculators is allowed, but use of personal notes or other teaching material is not allowed.
The homework is developed individually, and can be of two types (Homework I or Homework II). Homework I aims to develop analytical skills through personal data analysis. Homework II aims to develop critical skills with respect to empirical applications. Each student can choose which type of homework to deliver, but must deliver one of them. Once the deadline for delivery of Homework I has expired, it is possible to deliver Homework II only. The homework has to be delivered before taking part in the written essay; its grade remains valid throughout the academic year.

???AdattamentoProvaEsameDSA???

Evaluation criteria

The written essay evaluates general understanding of the main econometric topics and the ability to understand and interpret tables reporting econometric output. The homeworks ascertain the ability to develop empirical research through personal elaboration (Homework I) or to critically comment empirical research developed by others (Homework II).

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final grade is given by the average of the grades in the essay and the homework, with 80% and 20% weights respectively. In order to pass the exam, it is necessary to obtain a grade not below 16/30 in the written essay. Students can separately reject the essay grade and the homework grade. However, the homework grade can be rejected only once.

Type D and Type F activities

Nei piani didattici di ciascun Corso di studio è previsto l’obbligo di conseguire un certo numero di crediti formativi mediante attività a scelta (chiamate anche "di tipologia D e F").

Oltre che in insegnamenti previsti nei piani didattici di altri corsi di studio e in certificazioni linguistiche o informatiche secondo quanto specificato nei regolamenti di ciascun corso, tali attività possono consistere anche in iniziative extracurriculari di contenuto vario, quali ad esempio la partecipazione a un seminario o a un ciclo di seminari, la frequenza di laboratori didattici, lo svolgimento di project work, stage aggiuntivo, eccetera.

Come per ogni altra attività a scelta, è necessario che anche queste non costituiscano un duplicato di conoscenze e competenze già acquisite dallo studente.

Quelle elencate in questa pagina sono le iniziative extracurriculari che sono state approvate dal Consiglio della Scuola di Economia e Management e quindi consentono a chi vi partecipa l'acquisizione dei CFU specificati, alle condizioni riportate nelle pagine di dettaglio di ciascuna iniziativa.

Si ricorda in proposito che:
- tutte queste iniziative richiedono, per l'acquisizione dei relativi CFU, il superamento di una prova di verifica delle competenze acquisite, secondo le indicazioni contenute nella sezione "Modalità d'esame" della singola attività;
- lo studente è tenuto a inserire nel proprio piano degli studi l'attività prescelta e a iscriversi all'appello appositamente creato per la verbalizzazione, la cui data viene stabilita dal docente di riferimento e pubblicata nella sezione "Modalità d'esame" della singola attività.

COMPETENZE TRASVERSALI
Scopri i percorsi formativi promossi dal  Teaching and learning centre dell'Ateneo, destinati agli studenti iscritti ai corsi di laurea, volti alla promozione delle competenze trasversali: https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali


ATTENZIONE: Per essere ammessi a sostenere una qualsiasi attività didattica, incluse quelle a scelta, è necessario essere iscritti all'anno di corso in cui essa viene offerta. Si raccomanda, pertanto, ai laureandi delle sessioni di dicembre e aprile di NON svolgere attività extracurriculari del nuovo anno accademico, cui loro non risultano iscritti, essendo tali sessioni di laurea con validità riferita all'anno accademico precedente. Quindi, per attività svolte in un anno accademico cui non si è iscritti, non si potrà dar luogo a riconoscimento di CFU.

Graduation


Doppio Titolo

Grazie ad una rete di accordi con Atenei esteri, l’Università di Verona offre percorsi formativi internazionali che consentono l’acquisizione di un doppio titolo di studio. L’ammissione ad un CdS a doppio titolo consente di conseguire contemporaneamente, nel tempo di un normale ciclo di studi (di cui una parte viene svolta all'estero), sia il titolo di studio dell’Università di Verona che il titolo rilasciato dall'Ateneo partner, garantendo di vedere riconosciuto il diploma di laurea in entrambi i Paesi.
L'accesso al doppio titolo (così come l’eventuale sostegno finanziario) è regolato da uno specifico bando, e il numero di posti è limitato.
