授業の概要 Course Overview

Aligning with the NUCB Business School's mission, this course will assist participants in acquiring creative thinking, an exploratory attitude, and data analytical skills to solve practical economic and management problems.
In this course, students will learn how to apply linear regression models to explore and estimate economic and managerial relationships. Course topics include statistics review, simple linear regression, multiple regression estimation, multiple regression inference. Extensions covering statistical complications such as incorporating nonlinearities in linear regression and qualitative information: binary (or dummy) variables will also be included. Students will learn to solve data analysis problems in a Stata environment.
Participants will deepen their understanding of the fundamental methods of quantitative analysis in the fields of economics and management, and will be able to develop and apply these methods to analyze real-world economic and management problems.

Course Prerequisites
• It is desirable that participants have a basic understanding of statistic topics, such as normal distribution, distribution of the sample mean, Central Limit Theorem, confidence interval, hypothesis testing and conditional expectation. These can be found in the corresponding sections of Math Refresher B & C in the appendix of the textbook.
• A laptop computer with Stata installed is required for data analysis and case studies throughout the course. Stata 14 or above editions are acceptable. BE, SE and MP editions can all satisfy the requirements of the course. Introductory support will be provided by the instructor for those students who have not used Stata before.
• It is recommended that participants spend at least 3 hours of preparation time on each case, including the fundamental knowledge provided in the casebook. Participants who wish to gain more in-depth insights may read the relevant chapters of the textbook, but the course will be based on the content in the casebook.

Class Discussion
• Through class discussions and the instructor's comments, participants will understand the principles of quantitative analysis methods. In the subsequent case study, participants will be able to apply these methods to solve real-world economic and management problems.
• The key points and difficulties in the fundamental knowledge and case study will be fully discussed, and the steps of case analysis and data analysis will also be discussed in detail.
• Please note that the purpose of this course is to develop the participants' data analysis and hands-on skills. The focus of this course is not on mathematical derivations, although they may appear in the casebook.

Case Exam
• The cases and exam questions will be provided in class on Day 4.
• Duration: 3 hours
• Submission Deadline: Before the end of the fourth day of the course
• Submission Method: Upload the report in pdf format via google classroom
• Note: Screenshots of the data analysis process and results of Stata need to be attached and submitted together with the analysis of the cases.
