Master's thesis

Here are some guidelines for writing an M. Sc. thesis at the Chair of Econometrics and Statistics (Prof. C. Kleiber).

Your own suggestions are also welcome. Sometimes topics arise as a result of internships, possibly because of access to data. Please ask at an early stage whether topics are suitable for an M.Sc. thesis.



Some materials on working with R are available from OLAT, in a subfolder of the undergraduate course "Introduction to Econometrics".
