On completion students should have an extensive knowledge of time series techniques, especially dynamic modelling and advanced diagnostic tasks.
The students should have gained experience with Microfit and be able to complete the econometric investigation of small scale projects. In addition to dynamic modelling they should also be able to recognise the circumstances when simultaneous equation analysis is appropriate. They should be able to interpret econometric results with regard to policy changes and recent developments in the UK economy.
