This course should be a sequel to the basic Econometrics (Basic statistical methods and Linear regression model). It assumes familiarity with the general linear model and knowledge how to deal with basic model and data deficiencies, simultaneous systems, and simple time-series processes. Advanced Econometrics is the next course in a sequence (MA course(s) in Statistics and on Regression) designed to introduce tools necessary to understand and implement empirical studies in (micro)economics. The main emphasis of the course is twofold: (i) to extend regression models in the context of cross section and panel data analysis, (ii) to focus on situations where linear regression models are not appropriate and to study alternative methods. The objective of the course is to expose the student to variety of basic applied microeconomic challenges with the ultimate goal of gaining a stronger appreciation of strengths and weaknesses of the econometric methodology. Examples from applied work will be used to illustrate the discussed methods. Selected topics from advanced econometrics will be covered as well.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Review of basic linear regression model and introduction to maximum likelihood estimation and hypothesis testing
