Quantitative methods and the use of data is ever more present in corporations and in the academia. However, few courses offer the specialization of the Master in Applied Econometrics and Forecasting. This course reconciles the practical applications with an excellent theoretical foundation, which allows the students to understand what is behind the commonly used statistical models, to criticize them, and ultimately recognize its potentials but also its limitations. These characteristics offer something quite distinct, and a student who completes this Master will have much more to show than just the blind application of off-the-shelf algorithms.

Learning has not stopped after the master. The underlying mathematical foundations from the course, allowed for a broader coverage of different topics. Consequently, I was able to assimilate, with greater clarity, other methodologies with a marked importance to my career.
