Last update: prof. Roman Horváth, Ph.D. (14.11.2019)
The course concentrates on the practical use of econometric methods, reviewing the relevant methodology, its use, and the possible alternative modeling approaches. The lectures are supplemented by computer classes, where students can gain hands-on experience in applied econometric analysis. During the course we will especially focus on time series techniques applied to forecasting asset volatility, modeling inflation, exchange rate volatility and other topics that you may regularly encounter in economic and financial literature. The course focuses on following topics in econometrics: OLS, IV, ARIMA, GARCH, VAR, cointegration, filters and limited dependent variables.
Aim of the course -
Last update: prof. Roman Horváth, Ph.D. (14.11.2019)

Teaching methods -
Last update: prof. Roman Horváth, Ph.D. (15.02.2022)

Lectures accompanied by seminars in the computer room. The software R will be used during the seminars.

This semester we teach in the hybrid form. The students have two options: 1) they come to the lecture room 314 in Opletalova 26 building or 2) they join the lecture and seminar online using the MS Teams (please see the instructions below).

INSTRUCTIONS:

You can either join the class/group in MS teams or use a direct link to join the meeting.

To join the class you need to sign in to MS teams (with student_number@cuni.cz, otherwise it might not work) and then join the team using code jcz184d (in MS teams app: Teams -> Join or create team -> Join a team with a code).
