Course description and aims

This course is designed for 1st year graduate students and is taught in English.

Student learning outcomes

The course aims to present and illustrate the theory and techniques of modern econometric analysis.


Least square regression, Large sample asymptotics, Endogeneity, Panel data

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

The first part begins with reviews of the conditional expectation and least square regression. The second part introduces the large sample asymptotics. The third part applies the large sample asymptotics to the least squares. The final part introduces concepts of endogeneity.

  • IEE.B334 : Cliometrics
  • IEE.A204 : Probability for Industrial Engineering and Economics
  • IEE.A205 : Statistics for Industrial Engineering and Economics

Prerequisites (i.e., required knowledge, skills, courses, etc.)

The course prerequisites are Econometrics I (level: IEE 200) and Econometrics II (level: IEE 300). I strongly recommended both Introductory Courses in Statistics and Probability (level: IEE 200) by Professor Masami Miyakawa and Cliometrics (level: IEE 300) by Professor Daisuke Kurisu as the prerequisites. Students should be familiar with basic concepts in probability and statistical inference. Familiarity with matrix algebra is preferred.
