This course prepares students to undertake their own original research at the honours, masters, or doctoral levels. Research Methods in Finance 1 emphasises tools and techniques that constitute the workhorse models in Finance. Students learn a framework to formulate, implement, and interpret econometric specifications and results. The theoretical basis for and application of linear econometric models is covered in detail. Models analysed include ordinary least squares, instrumental variables through two-stage least squares, panel data, and difference-in-differences. Students are also introduced to data management tools and econometric software packages.
