The purpose of this SLP is to equip students with quantitative skills necessary for building economic models underlying economic relationships that exist between variables. In addition, the programme assists candidates in forecasting major macroeconomic and financial variables using time-series techniques. Consequently, policymakers and practitioners with no quantitative background will be able to provide sound recommendations derived from quantitative analysis of economic relationships. A better forecasting is necessary for economic agents who are constantly making decisions on investment or other actions which are dependent on the future.
