Professor: Alain Pirotte, Panthéon-Assas University.

Objective: This course focuses on the main econometric methods used in financial econometrics. Particular emphasis is first placed on all fundamental concepts of time series econometrics and more specifically on stationary and non-stationary random processes (identification, estimation, diagnostic tests, forecasting). Next, the course studies the univariate and multivariate non-linear modeling of the volatility of financial phenomena. Empirical applications are presented and concerned especially stock market and asset returns.
