Data Science for Financial Markets - Co-Developed with Lancaster University

18th - 19th June 2021 Online 2 days (18th June 2021 - 19th June 2021) EViews

Presented By: Dr. Malvina Marchese (Cass Business School, City, University of London)

At times of great uncertainty for financial markets, this course provides participants with an understanding of the time series methods involved in modelling and forecasting financial markets volatilities. Participants will learn how to build, estimate and assess alternative models of volatility of financial time series. Each concepts will be explained from an econometric perspective and by means of many examples and applications in EViews.

Macroeconomic Density Forecasting & Nowcasting

21st - 22nd June 2021 Online 2 days (21st June 2021 - 22nd June 2021) EViews

Presented By: Dr. Andrea Carriero (Queen Mary, University of London)

Whether you deal with forecasting at a Central Bank, public institution, bank or consultancy firm; or you use forecasting techniques in your research, this is the perfect course to bring you up to date with the latest methods in the forecasting profession.

An Introduction to Model Building Techniques in Stata

12th May 2021 Online 1 day (12th May 2021 - 12th May 2021) Stata

Presented by Robert Grant

In healthcare, economics or commercial data science, analysts of all backgrounds have to build models for their data. Models help us to understand causal relationships and forecast the future, but as statistician George Box put it, "all models are wrong, but some are useful". How do you know if your models are useful? Or maybe even wrong? This one-day course is an introduction to the techniques used in model building.

Advances in Causal Inference using Stata

22nd - 23rd November 2021 Online 2 days (22nd November 2021 - 23rd November 2021) Stata

Presented by: Dr. Giovanni Cerulli

Econometric modelling for causal inference and program evaluation have witnessed a tremendous development in the last decade, with new approaches and methods addressing an expanding set of challenging problems, both in medical and the social sciences. This course covers some recent developments in causal inference and program evaluation using Stata.

It will provide participants with the essential tools, both theoretical and applied, for a proper use of recent micro-econometric methods for policy evaluation and causal modelling in situations where the standard treatment setting poses limitations.

Midas Touch: Advanced Time Series In EViews

28th - 29th May 2021 Online 2 days (28th May 2021 - 29th May 2021) EViews

Presented By: Dr. Malvina Marchese (Cass Business School, City, University of London)

This course offers a comprehensive discussion of advanced time series models in EViews and their applications to a wide range of fields including: financial econometrics and macro econometrics. The course offers both a theoretical discussion of the models and many practical applications to time series data.

Causal Inference using Stata

9th August 2021 Online 1 day (9th August 2021 - 9th August 2021) Stata

Presented By: Dr. Austin Nichols

This course is for professionals and researchers from all academic disciplines who wish to improve their use of Stata.

Participants will be introduced to Stata and causal inference using practical examples. The fundamentals of data analysis and visualization will also be taught, using appropriate Stata commands and programming techniques

Econometrics of Program Evaluation Using Stata

8th & 9th November, 2021 Online 2 days (8th November 2021 - 9th November 2021) Stata

Presented By: Dr. Giovanni Cerulli

This course will provide participants with the essential tools, both theoretical and applied, for a proper use of modern micro-econometric methods for policy evaluation and causal counterfactual modelling under both assumptions of “selection on observables” and “selection on unobservables”. The course will cover these approaches: Regression adjustment (parametric and nonparametric), Matching (on covariates and on propensity score), Reweighting and Double-robust methods, and Difference-in-differences methods.

Advanced Machine Learning using Stata - Co-Developed with Lancaster University

18th - 19th May 2021 Online 2 days (18th May 2021 - 19th May 2021) Stata

Presented by Dr. Giovanni Cerulli

This course will focus on three specific techniques: regression and classification trees (including bagging, random forests, and boosting), kernel-based regression, and global methods (step-wise, polynomial, spline, and series regressions).The teaching approach will be mainly based on the graphical language and intuition more so than on algebra. The training will make use of instructional as well as real-world examples, and will evenly balance theory and practical sessions.

The course is open to people coming from all scientific fields, but it is particularly targeted to researchers working in the medical, epidemiological and socio-economic sciences.

Our Stata Summer school provides a very popular and flexible course framework allowing cost-effective attendance at any course separately, or the entire school. This is a great opportunity for students, academics and professionals to expand their econometrics skills and learn how they can apply econometrics and statistics from professionals pioneering research at the forefront of their specialist fields.

For the first time, we will be running our Summer school entirely online, so you can join from the comfort of your home, anywhere in the world.

Live sessions 10.00-12.00; 13.00-15.00; 15.30-17.00 including Q&A
