Program Description

MCom in Econometrics

University of Johannesburg

The aim of the qualification is to develop the applied competence of the student on an advanced level in the mastering, analysis, interpretation and understanding of econometric methods. This programme will prepare students to reflect on their own economic applications by using econometric techniques either to perform empirical checks on specific economic models, or as tools for forecasting and policy evaluation. A qualifying student should show evidence of independent and original work.

Admission requirements: A potential student must be in possession of a Bachelor of Commerce Honours qualification on New NQF level 8/Old NQF level 7, which is deemed applicable by the Department of Economics and Econometrics. Finalisation of registration for the programme (and/or continued registration) is subject to applicants complying with departmental-specific requirements. Such requirements usually include preparatory work leading up to a research proposal that is approved by the department. Possible examples of preparatory work are pre-reading, literature reviews, concept development, and successful completion of short courses aimed at skills and/or knowledge development. Candidates may also be required to successfully defend their research proposals at special discussion sessions.
