Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course seeks to complement “Multivariate Business Statistics” for PhD students in three distinct ways.

1. It will introduce to more complex limited dependent variable problems
2. It will introduce to the analysis of panel data
3. It will introduce to programming with one of the most powerful software tools in econometrics, namely STATA.

This course seeks also to complement “Econometrics” for PhD students in another important way. Namely,

4. the course will offer you an additional opportunity to become ever more familiar with the “hands on” application of both basic and more advanced regression techniques for your own research purposes.

The focus of the course is “solid application”. Hence, neither our theory sessions nor any of the exercises will be centred on mathematical proofs but rather on a proper understanding of the logic, options, and caveats of the methods we discuss.

That said, experience shows that most of you will still benefit from a brief revision of the basics for a variety of reasons. We will therefore be starting from a very basic level to make sure that everybody is on board. This being said please note that we will be moving fast.
In order to minimize the overlap with the core courses on statistical methods, we will be revisiting basic econometrics only very briefly before we move on to more advanced techniques.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Your final grade will be composed of the following elements:
20% class participation
30% presentation of a research article in class
50% final data-based project

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

This course is meant for PhD Management students at the University of Vienna with an interest in doing empirical research.

Furthermore, we strongly recommend:
• Successful attendance of the course Econometrics, or in-depth knowledge of the contents of that course.
• Successful attendance of the course Multivariate Business Statistics, or in-depth knowledge of the contents of that course.


One focus of this class will be on getting you to work on applied problems yourself. Essentially, the course will follow a “sandwich format” where front-end theory sessions, alternate with student presentations on selected research articles, and computer sessions during which we work on simulated and real data.
