2. Pre-Requisites

It is recommended to have passed the disciplines of Statistics and Mathematics. Also have completed the previous subject of Introduction to Econometrics.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession
The subject of Applied Econometrics is part of the fourth year of the Degree in Economics, within the module of analytical foundations and quantitative methods, is taught in the first semester after having taken the subjects of the discipline of Econometrics, in third year.

It is an instrumental basic subject in Applied Economics.
