About the course

This comprehensive Oxford seminar will integrate the concepts, variable-analysis, interpretation, and applications to forecasting and managerial decision making of sophisticated multivariate econometrics modeling.

It will provide senior managers with high-level skills and techniques to both perform basic econometric analysis, as well as interpret and apply econometrics outputs to a wide range of quantitative and qualitative problem-solving – covering all facets of hypothesis testing, variables selection, data types, statistical analysis and error tolerances, along with inferences-insights, correlations, and trends.

The seminar will utilize inexpensive software applications linked within Excel to perform high-level econometric research-analysis-review on par with the “best practices” used in contemporary economics, corporate forecasting, and Wall Street investment banking – helping managers become fluent in the terminology and process-application of econometrics to everyday decision making contexts.

Seminar Objective

Specifically you will learn to:

  • Design and produce all facets of an original business research study
  • Collect and format various types of quantitative and qualitative data
  • Perform different models of multivariate econometric analyses with applications in Excel
  • Analyze detailed statistical output from econometric model-software
  • Draw inferences to support high-level managerial decision making
  • Write a detailed, yet succinct, executive summary of research findings
