At minimum, participants should have a background in economic theory and statistical methods as this course is quite comprehensive.  Experience in the use of mathematics, statistics and regression analysis in economic research is also helpful.  Empirical examples from economics and finance are employed in the lectures and in student exercises to provide practice with data and problems that are typical in economic and business analysis.
