Computer exercises will be done using Eviews.
Practice is essential to learning and understanding econometric tools. Therefore, there will be computer practice sessions and also computer exercises as homework. The course will focus on how to implement basic econometric techniques.
Slides and book references are provided to facilitate successful course attendance. Slides, exercises, and other materials will be available at Aula Global. The chosen software to practice with econometric tools is Eviews.
