  • General Equilibrium Theory teaches them how to formulate the general equilibrium model and understand its basic properties, and critically evaluate underlying model assumptions and implications.
  • Through Advanced Econometrics 1 and 2, they obtain a deep understanding of econometric theory, practice and inference by using a variety of advanced techniques.
  • The theoretical background and economic applications of Game Theory trains them in the ability to model interactive decision-making situations using game-theoretic techniques, and compute and characterise their equilibrium outcomes.
  • Students also take one elective and one track-defining course, Machine Learning for Econometrics

Second semester

  • In their track-defining course Quantitative Marketing, they analyse relevant marketing questions and learn to apply quantitative techniques for making data driven marketing decisions.
