Time and place for the preliminary meeting will be announced on this page. Participants are asked to have a rough idea regarding a possible topic of their seminar thesis when attending the preliminary meeting.
The seminar will be held jointly by the chair of Prof. Biewen and Prof. Grammig. Topics of the seminar will include:
- Time Series Analysis
- Financial Econometrics
- Panel Data Analysis
Each participant will be assigned a specific topic. We expect all participants to prepare a professional presentation and a term-paper on his/her topic, which may include a small empirical application using data such as German Socio-Economic Panel Study or a data set from the field of finance.
- Formal guidelines for the written thesis are provided in the following document.
- Orthography, grammar and style of the thesis will be taken into account for grading.
- We suggest to use Latex to prepare the thesis and the presentation. The zip-file contains a document "vorlage.tex" which illustrates the use of Latex and provides installation information. "vorlage.pdf" is the result when compiling the tex-file.
- The presentation of the final thesis has to be in Powerpoint, Latex or similar. There is no need for handouts.
