What is it about?

Aimed at students with a background in economics, analytics or mathematics (including some statistics), the Master of Applied Econometrics is a three-semester program that focuses on the practical application of advanced econometric modelling techniques.

Econometric skills (the application of statistical methods to economic data), are increasingly in demand as advances in information and communications technologies, offer greater opportunities to work with big data.
