Time Series Analysis


Time Series Analysis is a part of the English-language Master’s program in Economic Analysis.
The course will introduce the students to the applied analysis of univariate and multivariate time series data that represent sequential information on, for example, stock, bonds or commodities prices, and other macro- or microdata of interest. Topics covered in the course include unit root, stationarity, spurious regressions, vector autoregression models, cointegration and error-correction models, as well as multivariate volatility models. Applied analysis in the course will be undertaken using a popular R computing language. 


Will be interesting for: 

  • analysts of companies and NGO who work with large data sets
  • faculty members and scientists
  • final year undergraduate students    


After course completion, you will able to: 


  • understand the structure and techniques to analyze and forecast time series data
  • conduct applied analysis and empirical research using time series data



Knowledge of descriptive statistics, linear regression analysis and basics of R programming
