3790 Economics & Business Statistics
The course introduces students to graphical and numerical
techniques for summarizing univariate data. It is followed
with a treatment of the probability theory and distributions with emphasis on uncertainty in estimating parameters and testing hypotheses about
them. Additional topics in hypothesis testing include the Chi-square test,
and the ANOVA (F-test). Attention is then shifted to the Simple
Regression and Correlation techniques for analyzing bivariate data
and the Multiple
Regression and Correlation techniques for analyzing multivariate data. Other topics covered include Index
Numbers, and elementary Time Series Analysis & Forecasting. The focus throughout is on application and interpretation of results.
Econ 3790 Lab Economics &
Business Statistics Workshop
The course is a continuation of econ 3790 with the emphasis on computer application
using Excel 2007 to analyze business and economic data. The goal is
to help students explore and analyze data in an orderly fashion in a
computer lab environment. The manual that is used in the course provides
students with the opportunity to solve statistical problems and analyze
cases with the real world data.
Econ 5824 Applied Time
Series Analysis and Forecasting
The course provides an in-depth analysis of economic and business time series
data. Several time series models and their applications to problems are examined.
Throughout, emphasis is on forecasting using standard computer programs.
Econ 5853 Applied
The course is an introduction to the practice of econometrics. Students
will learn how to use econometric techniques to quantify causal economic relationships
with applications in the private and public sectors. Emphasis is placed on model
construction, estimation using standard econometrics software, and on the interpretation
of the estimated results. Although the course integrates the use of personal
computer and econonometric software within the discussion of the subject material, no
programming ability is required.
Econ 6900 Statistical
A survey of the fundamental statistical concepts and techniques used in business
and economics with special emphasis on the interpretation and uses of statistical analysis
in business and economic decision-making.
Econ 6904 Quantitative
Methods in Economics
The course is designed to equip graduate students with the necessary
quantitative skills that are required for a successful completion of the graduate-level
economic theory sequence and econometrics. The course also prepares the students for
advanced degree (Ph.D) program in economics.
Econ 6976 Econometrics
The course is designed to acquaint graduate students with the cutting-edge
econometric techniques that are useful for estimating causal economic relationships. The
objectives include (1) analysis of the effects of exogenous factors on the variable whose
behavior we seek to explain, (2) testing of hypotheses about new and existing economic
theories, and (3) forecasting estimated economic relationships beyond the sample period
for the purpose of planning and control. The course will focus on the practice of
econometrics with extensive applications to a variety of real-world problems in many areas
Econ 2610 Principles of Microeconomics
The course is designed to give students an understanding of how markets work and how they
allocate resources to meet consumers' needs. As part of this goal we will discuss how
prices serve as signals to firms as to which products should be produced, and how profits
provide firms with incentives to change the amount produced. Also we will discuss how the
absence of competition and effects on third parties can cause markets to produce too much
or too little of a good.
Econ 2630 Principles of Macroeconomics
The course is designed to meet two broad objectives. First,
students will learn the intricate inter-relatedness and the performance of the economy as a whole
at the national level by
becoming familiar with the key concepts of GDP, unemployment/employment
and also why inflation and unemployment are considered the twin evils of any economy.
Second, they will learn the causes/sources of short-run business
fluctuations and how policy makers use the instruments of fiscal and monetary policies to keep the economy moving
along a stable long-run growth path.
