The first part of the course focuses on the practical issues of carrying out an empirical research project, including the development of a research question, the literature review, the collection and processing of data, and the econometric analysis. In the second part of the course, the students will carry out an independent empirical analysis in the area of corporate finance, make a presentation and write a related seminar paper.
