Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The main objective of the seminar is to give a brief overview of topics in modern financial econometrics, a practical knowledge of performing applied empirical research as well as an experience of working with real financial data.
The seminar also aims to provide a ground for students to practice presentation skills and a critical assessment of research papers.

Assessment and permitted materials

Assessment is based on a term project (possibly, performed in groups) and seminar participation (that might include several different activities).
A project consists of a paper and a presentation of results during the seminar. The research question for a project is supposed to be selected from several suggested topics.
Seminar participation includes several additional activities (referee reports, discussions in class, presentation of selected papers, etc.)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The final grade is compiled as follows:
1) Project - 60%
2) Seminar participation - 40%

Examination topics

Reading list

There will be no unique course textbook. Instead, research papers are recommended as a source of relevant material for the projects.
