The course objective is that students can perform, assess and apply scientific economic research. In M&T, students get acquainted with scientific reasoning methods and practical research techniques. They also learn how to present research outcome.
During the later Research Project (block 5) students practically exercise, independently and in small teams, empirical quantitative research. They then show their ability to apply theories, methods, techniques and skills studied earlier.
In Methods & Techniques students will learn to work with a tool box for scientific economic research. The focus is on acquiring knowledge and skills useful for fundamental and applied research in both the public and the private sector. The complete cycle of scientific research will be discussed. In the Techniques part, lectures will build on the knowledge and insights from the courses Applies Statistics, adding some econometric techniques (in particular timeseries analyses).
