|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Business, Law & Governance
This subject is specifically designed for students who plan to do economic research
of their own and/or who are interested in case studies in applied economics. During
the subject six different topics will be introduced by various different members of
staff. Each topic will be discussed for just one week - during two separate three-hour
workshops. In most cases, the first workshop will provide some theoretical background
to the topic under consideration, while the second workshop will show how these theories
are tested, empirically, in 'real life' case studies.
- be able to compare and evaluate the ability of different models, theoretical frameworks,
statistical and econometric techniques to generate information that is useful for
specific policy/management problems;
- appreciate and understand the data (information) which researchers must have access
to, if wishing to operationalise different models (or theoretical frameworks;
- appreciate and understand the statistical and econometric problems likely to confront
those seeking to operationalise different models (or theoretical frameworks).
