Within the context of THE ADVANCED COURSES IN ECONOMICS, we are delighted to announce the course entitled: MODELS WITH PANEL DATA STATA.

 

The course has been offered as an education initiative for graduate students and professionals from several leading institutions.

 

This course will be taught mainly by Badi Baltagi, considered as a world class expert in Panel Data Models, with a large experience in teaching and publishing scientific papers in some of the most remarkable journals in statistics and econometrics. The course will be also developed by a scholar from the UAM, Inmaculada Álvarez, who also accounts for a wide experience with the panel data models and the econometric analysis with STATA.

The specific objectives of the course will be:

  • To promote the advanced knowledge in econometric analysis techniques with a practical and "learning by doing" approach.
  • To introduce students to the development of quantitative analysis using one of the leading econometric programs currently used in economic research, such as STATA.
  • To provide the basic theoretical and computational skills necessary to implement the main models of STATA "Panel Data".
  • To promote learning in the presentation of scientific results in the format of an academic journal, posing hypotheses, designing experiments and models needed by selecting the appropriate variables and presenting the results effectively.
  • To promote interaction between students and local and invited scholars, creating a comfortable atmosphere for scientific consultations, and encouraging the development of joint research and specific research approach and future doctoral dissertations.
