Description: This course is intended to get students up to speed with a toolbox and working facility of methods commonly used in empirical finance research. For each method, we will follow a three-step learning process. We first cover the econometrics from a mathematical (but light and intuitive) approach. Then we will observe researchers using the method in the wild. Then you will use it yourself through exercises and problem sets. Repeatable for Credit.
