This course offers an introduction to impact evaluation for master students from the Master in Economics of Public Policies, and Master in Economics as well as Ph.D. students at URosario. Impact evaluation is a rapidly expanding area at the cross section of economics, public policy, and finance. It’s purpose is to harness modern tools and technologies to evaluate the causal impact of public and social programs, business initiatives, and more.
This course also seeks to provide opportunities for students to work on empirical issues. Weekly STATA lab sessions will be conducted by teaching assistants for that matter. In addition, empirical papers will be discussed in order to get a better understanding of the techniques introduced in class.
