This course provides an advanced treatment of quantitative methods designed for Ph.D students in economics who have undertaken courses in mathematics and statistics for economists, and econometrics at the master’s degree level. The aim is to prepare the students to pursue microeconomic and macroeconomic analysis at an advanced level. To ensure that the course is pitched at a high enough level for PhD, extensive use of matrix algebra is recommended. Further, to make the course relevant to economists, it is recommended that the course be taught using economics examples.
