Instructor for this course

This course is focused on a special kind of regression that can help with making more accurate financial analyses. A common issue when dealing with large data sets is that multiple variables are changing at the same time and some of those variables are unobservable. To deal with this, a technique called a fixed effects regression needs to be used. The focus of this module is on applying fixed effects regressions in the context of business.
