The course consists of 5 consecutive days comprising 6 hours of classroom interaction per day. There will be three parts: lectures that cover the methodological background, discussion sessions in which the students’ own research as well as existing applied articles will be discussed, and exercise sessions in which panel data estimation methods are applied using Stata. For the exercise sessions, students should bring their own computer. PhD students should bring their own license (please contact us if this is problematic). For master students, we can provide student licenses (please contact us as well in advance if you need a license). The course is taught in small groups of max. 20 participants. The workload for this course will consist of 30 hours of lecturing, discussion and exercise work and 120 hours additional individual preparation. This course equals 5 credit points.
All intensive courses are led by outstanding speakers from RWTH Aachen University and other internationally renowned universities.
