Old StO: MA-600 strongly recommended; enrollment only together with the advanced exercise MA-061 (part 2).


Written exam (90 minutes) + 1-2 short presentations.

Students on the Economic degree program are already registered for the exam when they register for the lecture. Deregistration is only possible during the registration period.
Students on the EPQM degree program must register for the exam separately in PULS (no later than 8 days before the exam date).


The aim of this course is to provide participants with a deeper understanding of microeconometric estimation techniques. We will use the topic ”Policy Evaluation” to illustrate and discuss several methods under various types of assumptions.



-        Causality and the Potential Outcome Framework

-        Experiments

-        Unconfoundedness

-        Matching

-        Difference-in-Differences

-        Instrumental Variables

-        Regression-Discontinuity Design


The lecture will be complemented by a practical computer session ”Public Policy Evaluation (2)” where the estimators will be implemented using STATA.
