8.00 ECTS (4.00 SWS), SPL 4 - Wirtschaftswissenschaften
Continuous assessment of course work

This course introduces
students to empirical methods in Industrial Organization and Competition Policy. The course will
put a substantial amount of effort in having the students work with
econometric software in analyzing actual data sets, reproducing and
criticizing results in previous work and learning the actual practice of
econometrics as undertaken by the best applied economists. There will be
empirical exercises based on the readings.
They are likely to be computer and data intensive. Students should make sure
you have access to the relevant computer programs, such as Stata or similar
software.
