Course Overview

Nowadays, large amounts of data have become available for the analysis of various problems for academics and managers alike. Knowledge about quantitative methods is therefore an important skill when starting a career. This seminar aims to further strengthen your knowledge and enrich your experience in quantitative data analysis. It will provide an overview on different advanced econometric methods, before students apply these methods hands-on while preparing seminar papers. Students will work on several micro-level datasets on media industries that will be prepared and analyzed with the statistical software STATA.

Course Structure

The seminar will begin with a two-day kickoff session, where the lecturers will introduce students to the setting, recap and introduce empirical methods and introduce the statistical software STATA. Students will regularly meet with a supervisor. After four weeks, students will present their preliminary results and then write up their results in a seminar paper.
