Econometrics students of honours standard are invited to enrol in this unit, which serves as an orientation for honours. The purpose is to obtain a broader appreciation of the role of the honours programme and the use of econometrics and statistics in business and government. Students attend regular meetings with staff members and visiting professionals and academics.
The learning goals associated with this unit are to:
- prepare for and provide an understanding of what the honours year involves in terms of subjects, course structure and workload
- describe the role of Quantitative Analysts, Econometricians and Economists in professional roles
- gain an understanding of interview techniques, specifically the questions likely to be asked in an interview and how to negotiate with potential employers.
The final mark for this unit is based on satisfactory attendance at the meetings and performance in third-year econometrics units.
