There has been an explosion of interest in text analysis within the fields of economics, management, and finance. The Computational Methods for Economists: Text analysis and agent-based models course will teach doctoral and master students a range of computational methods in topic modeling, statistical methods for making causal inferences from text and agent-based computational economics. Through a series of hands-on tutorials, the students will also work on real examples with real coding solutions that they can refer back to in future research projects.
