Building on the material acquired in a basic introductory course in econometrics, the aim of this course is to familiarize the student with some of the most popular econometric methods encountered in applied work in finance. After a brief review of the classical linear model, three major topics are considered:
J.Y. Campbell, A.W. Lo and A.C. Mackinlay, The Econometrics of Financial Markets, Princeton University Press, Princeton, 1997.
