The workshop is intended for students entering the econometrics master’s program in Econometrics and Operations Research, track: Econometrics.
There is no fee for VU EOR master students.
EUR 400 for non-VU SBE students.
The workshop begins on Wednesday August 25 at 10:00 and finishes on Wednesday September 1 at 16:00.
There is no exam.
Jan R. Magnus (lectures) and Karim Moussa (classes).
This is a 6-day workshop with two hours of lectures in the morning (10:00-12:00) and two hours of programming classes in the afternoon (14:00-16:00). In between classes, the students are given time to work on theoretical exercises, for which online support is provided. The main purpose of the workshop is to refresh the student’s knowledge in matrix algebra (2 days), statistics (2 days), and econometrics (2 days), so that they obtain the required knowledge to fruitfully follow the courses in the master’s program. A second purpose is to teach students how to program at the level required in the master’s program. The default language will be Python, for which notes and other material is made available. Limited support will be available for other languages (provided that the student is already proficient with the preferred language). A more detailed schedule of topics will be made available at a later stage.
There is no certainty at this point on how the lectures and classes will be delivered. The most likely scenario is a hybrid of on campus and online teaching. This will be decided and communicated later.
