The Introductory Econometrics curriculum of the ELTECON BA programme has been designed for a one-semester course, which is preceded by a two-semester Mathematics, a one-semester Probability and Statistics and a one-semester Data Analysis course. Hence the aim is that the students, building on their previous studies, become familiar with the theoretical background and empirical applications of the major econometric techniques. G. S. Maddala's Introduction to Econometrics (below denoted by M) is the main textbook for the course but some parts are taken from Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach, written by J. Wooldridge (below denoted by W), which has not been translated to Hungarian yet. Thus we place more emphasis on asymptotic theory and on the problems associated with time series regression. We present empirical applications also on Hungarian data.
The curriculum does not substitute either for the textbooks or for the complete list of exercises made for the course.
