    Topics

    Topics are given in individual agreement with the members of the chair. Topics can either be linked to the contents of the master courses of the chair, i.e. in particular to the courses Econometrics 3 and Financial Market Econometrics, or deal with other econometric methods. In addition to a theoretical part, in which the corresponding method is explained theoretically, master theses should also contain an empirical part, in which the theoretically explained contents are applied practically. For this purpose, sample data sets from e.g. R can be used.
