There are many great Econometrics courses on Udemy which sell in thousands of copies. However, busy MBA students and professionals might not have sufficient programming experience to run econometric models in Python, R, Stata or Eviews. MS Excel, on the other hand, is a familiar and accessible tool which can be used for advanced data analytics. 

In this concise course I have carefully selected the most important econometric tools and techniques that are really needed to understand the complicated relationships that exist in your data. Linear regression is the absolute must for data analysis and Analysis ToolPak is a simple yet powerful feature available in MS Excel. The key concepts used in this course have been distilled based on my experience with many groups of business students that I have taught in three MBA programs and various industries.

Econometrics has horrible fame. The complex theorems, combined with boring classes where it feels like you are learning Greek, give every student nightmares. This course stays away from that. It will focus on (1) giving you the intuition and tools to apply the techniques learned, (2) making sure everything that you learn is actionable in your career, and (3) offer you a tool kit of peer-reviewed econometric causal inference techniques that will make you stand out and give you the ability to answer the tough questions.

WHY ECONOMETRICS FOR BUSINESS IN R AND Python?

In each section, you will learn a new technique. The learning process is split into three parts. The first is an overview of Use Cases. Drawing from business literature and my own experience, I will show examples where each Econometric technique has been applied. The goal here is to show that Econometric methods are actionable. The second part is the Intuition tutorials. The aim is for you to understand why the technique makes sense. All intuition tutorials are based on business situations. The last part is the Practice tutorials, where we will code and solve a business or economic problem. There will be at least one practice tutorial per section.

Below are 4 points on why this course is not only relevant but also stands out from others.

1| THOROUGH COURSE STRUCTURE OF MOST IMPACTFUL ECONOMETRIC TECHNIQUES

The techniques in this course are the ones I believe will be most impactful in your career. Like HR, Marketing, Finance, or Operations, all company departments can use these causal techniques. Here is the list:

  1. Difference-in-differences

  2. Google's Causal Impact

  3. Granger Causality

  4. Propensity Score Matching

  5. CHAID

2| BUSINESS EXAMPLES TO FOSTER INTUITION

Each section starts with an overview of business cases and studies where each econometric technique has been used. I will use examples that come from my own professional experience and business literature. The aim is to give you the intuition where to apply them in your current job. By the end of each intuition tutorial, you will be able to easily explain the concepts to your colleagues, manager, and stakeholders.

One of the benefits of giving actual business problems as examples is that you will find similar or even equal issues in your current company. In turn, this enables you to apply what you have learned immediately. Here are some examples:

  1. Impact of M&A on companies.

  2. Understanding how weather influences sales.

  3. Measuring the impact of brand campaigns.

  4. Whether Influencer or Social Media Marketing results in sales.

  5. Investigating the drivers of customer satisfaction.

3| CHALLENGING AND INTERESTING PROBLEMS TO APPLY WHAT YOU LEARNED

For each section, we will have at least one real business or economic dataset. We will apply what we learned during the intuition tutorials.

Here are some examples of problems we will solve and code together:

  1. Measuring the impact of the Cambridge Analytica Scandal on Facebook's stock price.

  2. Assessing the results of giving training to employees.

  3. Challenge the idea that increasing the minimum wage decreases employment.

  4. Ranking the drivers on why people quit their jobs.

  5. Solving the thousand-year-old riddle of who came first: "Chicken or the egg?".

4| HANDS-ON CODING

We will code together. In every single practice tutorial, we will start from scratch, building the code line by line. As also an online coding student, I feel this has been the easiest way to learn.

On top, the code will be built so that you download it and apply the causal inference techniques in your work and projects. Additionally, I will explain what you have to change to use in your dataset and solve the problem you have at hand.

Econometrics for Business in R and Python is a course that naturally extends into your career.

***SUMMARY

The course is packed with use cases, intuition tutorials, hands-on coding, and, most importantly, is actionable in your career.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, and I hope to see you inside!

''The videos are more detailed as compared to how I was taught Econometrics at school. He explains everything in a calm, not so rushed manner''

''I am taking Econometrics this year at the University and this course makes a lot of sense. Everything is explained in a step by step and detailed manner''

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Many students who are new to Econometrics describe it as a difficult subject.
Do you think the same?
Do you get lost among the mathematical equations and notations? 

If yes, then this is the first thing that you need to do - 'Change your approach to study this subject'

Take it from me, Econometrics is quite an interesting subject. Whether you like it or not depends on how you tackle this subject. If you want to master Econometrics, then you need to understand the intuition of each and every concept and the logic behind each and every equation. And this is what I am going to help you with!!

In this course, I will take you through:

1) All the equations that you will encounter in Simple Linear Regression (Population side as well as the sample side)

2) The method of Ordinary Least Squares

COURSE TOPICS COVERED

Chapter 1- Sample moments and Software: Before we begin this course, we will look at sample moments (numbers you can calculate from a sample) and introduce some econometric software.

Chapter 2 - Least squares principle: This chapter introduces the least squares principle. The basic problem is how to fit a straight line through a scatter plot. We will cover the ordinary least squares (OLS) formula which will provide us with an intercept and a slope. We will the derive the OLS formula from the least squares principle. This chapter focuses on the algebra of least squares. There is no probability theory or statistics in this chapter. Important concepts introduced in this chapter: Trendline, residuals, fitted values and R-squared. In addition to Excel, we will also use demonstrate how to find trendlines using EViews and Stata.

Chapter 3 - Introduction to probability theory: We now know how to fit a straight line through a scatter plot. The next step is to introduce appropriate assumptions on how our data was generated. We will model our data as a random sample. More specifically, we will model our data as drawings from random variables. This idea turns out to be very fruitful. Random variables are concepts in probability theory which this chapter is about. This chapter covers the absolute minimum from probability theory that we need to progress: random variables, distribution functions, expected value, variance, covariance and conditional expectations.

Chapter 4 - The linear regression model with one explanatory variable: This chapter formalizes the most important model in econometrics, the linear regression model. The entire chapter is restricted to a special case, nameley when you have only one explanatory variable. The key assumtion of the linear regression model, exogeneity, is introduced. Then, the OLS formula from chapter 1 is reinterpreted as an estimator of unknown parameters in the linear regression model. This chapter also introduces the variance of the OLS estimator under an important set of assumptions, the Gauss-Markov assumptions.

Chapter 5 - Inference in the linear regression model with one explanatory variable: Inference means something like "a conclusion reached on the basis of evidence and reasoning". We now know how to estimate the parameters of the linear regression model (with one explanatory variable). However, these estimates are uncertain. In this section, we see what conclusions we can draw from all of this. But first, we must investigate a few more distributions (in addition to the normal distribution).

Chapter 6 - The linear regression model with several explanatory variable: In this chapter, we allow for several explanatory variables. We begin by setting up the linear regression with several explanatory variables including the assumptions that we need to make. As in the simpler model with one explanatory variable, the main focus is on estimating the beta-parameters. However, we will no longer be able to present general formulas, such as the OLS formula for our beta-estimates. To do this, we need matrix algebra which is outside the scope of this course. Instead, we rely on the fact that they have been correctly programmed into software such as Excel, EVies, Stata and more. Once we have fully understood the general linera regression model, we move on to inference.

Chapter 7 - Nonlinear and logarithmic regression model: So far, the dependent variable has been modeled as a linear function of the explanatory variables plus an additive error term. In this section, we will look at nonlinear models. First, we look at general non-linear models. Then, we focus on the most important class of non-linear models, logarithmic models.

Chapter 8 - Dummy variables: If all observations belong to one out of two groups, then a dummy variable can be used to encode this information. A dummy variable will take the value zero for all observations belong to one group and one for all the remaining observations belonging to the other group. We can use a dummy variable as an explanatory variable in a linear regression model in the same way that we use an ordinary explanatory variable. Dummy variables can be used even if you have more than two groups.

Chapter 9 - Heteroscedasticity: Heteroscedasticity means that the variance of the error term is different between different observations and this is very common in economics. We begin by looking at tests helping us figuring out if our data is homoscedastic or heteroscedasticity. If we find that we have heteroscedasticity, then the standard errors derived by assuming homoscedasticity are no longer valid. Instead, we can use robust standard errors. Also, with heteroscedasticity OLS is no longer efficient. In this case, the efficient estimator is called the weighted least squares.

Chapter 10 - Endogeneity and instrumental variables: In this chapter we will look at cases when explanatory variables cannot be expected to be exogenous (we then say that they are endogenous). We will also look at the consequence of econometric analysis with endogenous variables. Specifically, we will look at misspecification of our model, errors in variables and the simultaneity problem. When we have endogenous variables, we can sometimes find instruments for them, variables which are correlated with our endogenous variable but not with the error term. This opens for the possibility of consistently estimate the parameters in our model using the instrumental variable estimator and the generalized instrumental variable estimator.

This course, jointly with the Introductory Econometrics course, provides the most comprehensive and serious overview of first-year Econometrics available, to date, on Udemy.

I don't have to be here. But if I am going to be here, I am going to do it right and set the benchmark as to how Economics should be taught. Because I take students and their exams and their personal development seriously (on that note, feel absolutely free to reach out for any question or doubt that may arise as you delve into the material). Because, when I was taken seriously by my professors, everything became clearer and more engaging. Because the world is in dire need of engaged, curious people who act according to the brains instead of their stomach, people who let serious social science guide their gaze upon the surrounding world instead of random nonsense. A thoughtful world is a better world. I am strongly convinced that a serious study of proper economics helps moving toward that end.

In this course, I set out to complete the first-year sequence by introducing the main methods in Applied Econometrics. Its purpose, shared by the Introductory Econometrics course too, is to lay the foundations for deeper and more comprehensive studies in Econometrics. Hence, I spend little time dwelling on the mathematical derivation and statistical nuances, covering only the bare minimum, and more time trying to convey the intuition, the concept and, essentially, why should you care. Namely, after having introduced the Potential Outcomes Framework, I set out to illustrate Randomised Experiments (RCTs), Linear Regression, Instrumental Variables (IVs), Difference-in-Differences (DiD), Regression Discontinuity Design (RDD) and provide a brief overview of Panel Data, Matching and Synthetic Control. I cap it off by providing you with a list of Applications, real world examples of what kind of questions these models allow you to address, in the hope that they fire your curiosity up. Which is the only thing that matters.

This course is essentially designed for economics students. Econometrics is a mandatory course to be completed in every Economics curriculum at university. The core classes an economics student has to complete in order to graduate are Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Mathematical Economics, and Econometrics. And Econometrics is known to be the most difficult of all.

Econometrics has the reputation of being a fearful discipline and many students have been intimidated by the subject. Econometrics is used everywhere and in almost every professional industry on a daily basis to make decisions. Businesses use it to decide how to promote a product and their brand, schools use it to determine their admission rate, the government uses it to predict voting patterns and outcomes, hospitals use it to predict the spread of diseases, Banks and hedge funds use it to determine the price of the stock market and the trend of financial markets...etc. Econometrics is part of our lives.

The primary goal of this course is to demystify the field of Econometrics. It is meant to facilitate the understanding of complex econometric subjects. This course is structured to provide the foundational knowledge required to do econometric analysis and statistical modeling. It teaches the basic and advanced methods of econometric modeling.
