Feedback and Testimonials
Delegate feedback from Macroeconomic Modelling and Forecasting, 23-25 July 2013 (part of the 2013 Econometrics Summer School at the University of Cambridge):
"For my work (forecasting of economic variables) the course subject was very useful (and is rarely offered by other institutions) / please continue to offer such courses. The practical examples did help me, especially the tips/information on how to build a macroeconomic model/equation. I appreciated that the theoretical level (of statistical modelling) was not too high. I would not have needed the theoretical sessions with little practical relevance (for example about how to evaluate forecasts)."
"Good course material that can be used for reference; Lecturer is very knowledgeable."
"The application of EViews for the estimation of VAR models was very useful."
"Lecturer is very knowledgeable. Good course material that can be used for reference."
"Blending of theory and practice is excellent."
"The combination and integration of econometric theory with practical application to relevant economic analyses. It gave depth and relevant insight into the practical world of econometrics in informing policy scenarios."
