Objectifs d'apprentissage :
Learning outcomes to be attained
1 Is able to relate theory to practice.
2 Can develop a reasoning that corresponds to the (domain-specific) scientific requirements.
3 Can identify, model and analyse the results of a discipline-related problem.
4 Knows the techniques and methods of research and knows how to implement them adequately.
5 Supports the conclusions in a scientifically-based discourse.
6 Integrates information technology to come to solutions.
7 Has insight in a basic set of concepts within the domain of mathematics and statistics and their application.
8 Has insight in a basic set of concepts and methods within the domain of operations research, econometrics and multivariate data-analysis and their application.
9 Is able to use mathematical, statistical and research methods in order to set up models for analysing business problems in different domains (natural sciences, technology, economics, business economics,...).
10 Is able to use his knowledge of mathematics, statistics and research methods to judge information and results of business problems in a critical way in different domains (natural sciences, technology, economics, business economics,...).
11 Is able to use ICT-tools as an aid in modelling research problems and in analysing and presenting their results.

Key objectives of the course
1. Use the classical methods to estimate parameters (method of moments, maximum likelihood method).
2. To be able to draw, starting from a sample, conclusions in a scientifal correct way, by constructing confidence statements and/or testing hypotheses.
3. To understand the possibilities and the limitations (assumptions!) of statistical models.
4. The student can read and understand a scientific econometric study.
5. The student can perform a scientific econometric study himself.

Activités d'apprentissages prévues et méthodes d'enseignement :
Cours magistral et séances d'exercices

Méthodes d'évaluation :
Type : Exam during the examination period
Description of evaluation : Oral, Written, Practical exam
Type of questions : Open questions
Learning material : List of formulas, Calculator, Computer

Part 1 of the exam consists of exercises (practical and theoretical). The problems are similar to the problems treated during the class, the tutorials, the homeworks. This part is written.

Part 2 consists of a practical exercise with a computer with R.
Formulas: the only formulas that are allowed are the formulas that can be downloaded from Toledo. These formulas should be printed and can -without additional notes - be used during the exam.
The weight of both parts will be indicated on the exam itself.

The evaluation methods for the second chance exam are identical to the first.
