Lecturer: Dr Brian Turner
Department: Department of Economics, Cork University Business School.
Module: EC4215 – Business Econometrics I.


Integration of GCDE

The module introduces econometrics to students. Econometrics is essentially a way of mathematically/statistically modelling economic phenomena using data. The plan is to introduce concepts relating to global citizenship using examples of regression analysis, using datasets on relevant indicators and existing research in this area. It will integrate GCDE-related examples rather than more generic economic examples when presenting ideas related to regression analysis. This would be a more subtle exposure of students to GCDE concepts than in a more qualitative module. I would hope that, by using CGDE-related examples in class, this would encourage students to develop an interest in these issues and research these further themselves.
