– Over the years, we have seen economics become increasingly more empirical. It is crucial for future economists to master data analysis, especially if you want to assert yourself in the field of economic research, says course coordinator Torfinn Harding. 

Econometrics is an essential method in the field of empirical economic research. It uses statistical methods and quantitative data to study causality. Econometrics is often used to analyse the effect of various policy measures such as: Will people work less if we raise the income tax? How effective is punishment in reducing crime? Does new technology make businesses more efficient?

In August 2022, the UiS Business School offers a course in econometrics for PhD students in the social sciences. The course is taught by the renowned professor of economics Magne Mogstad from the University of Chicago. Mogstad is ranked as number 25 in the world based on publications in the last ten years.

The course aims to develop the necessary knowledge to understand, design, conduct, and interpret empirical analyses of real-world data.

– This is a rare opportunity to learn state-of-the-art microeconometric methods from one of the foremost experts in the field, says course coordinator and professor of economics Torfinn Harding.

A doctoral research fellow's experience with the course

Last time the course was held, it was fully booked with several visiting participants from other European universities. Hedda Rytter Tveiten, a doctoral research fellow at the University of Bergen, was one of the participants.

– The course has been very good in terms of academic benefits. We have received a basic introduction, and we now have a better overview of how the methods are used in practice by those who produce large articles in the best journals. You learn how things are connected, what works and what doesn’t work, as well as the type of problems you may encounter and how to solve them, Rytter Tveiten said after participating in the course last fall.

Who is the course for?

The course is suited for PhD students in economics as well as the other social sciences. To attend the course, you must be enrolled in a PhD programme. The recommended prerequisite is a master's degree in economics or similar. The language of instruction is English.
