July 27 - August 7, 2020

Monday, Wednesday, Friday
1:00 PM - 4:30 PM Eastern

The Applied Econometrics Certificate Program is not like academic econometric courses, which are often long on theory and short on practical applications. This program emphasizes business applications of statistical techniques and covers cutting-edge developments in economic methodologies and quantitative analysis. All participants who complete the course will earn NABE's Certificate in Applied Econometrics. The course will meet via Zoom software, and attendees can expect to interact with the instructor and other classmates through live instruction, live breakout groups, and at-home assignments with report back models.
