Seminar outline

The seminar will be held jointly by the chair of Prof. Biewen and Prof. Grammig. Topics of the seminar will be chosen from the following fields: 1) Time Series Analysis, 2) Financial Econometrics, 3) Microeconometrics, 4) Panel Data Analysis. We expect and encourage participants to come up with ideas for their own topics (of course, we will provide assistance in finding a suitable topic). We expect all participants to prepare a professional presentation and a term paper on their topic, which may include a small empirical application using data such as the German Socio-Economic Panel Study or a data set from the field of finance. If you are interested in carrying out your own empirical project we recommend you to read chapter 19 "Carrying out an Empirical Project" of Wooldridge's book "Introductory Econometrics".
