An Interactive 5-Day Training Course

Practical Econometrics for Managerial Decision Making

Developing Insights from Multivariate Models and Analysis

Course Introduction

"Doing econometrics can feel like trying to learn the laws of electricity by playing the radio." - Economist Guy Orcutt

“Econometrics is the quantitative analysis of actual phenomena, based on the concurrent development of theory and observation, related by inferences.”  Economist Paul Samuelson

This comprehensive training course will integrate the concepts, variable-analysis, interpretation, and applications to forecasting and managerial decision making of sophisticated multivariate econometrics modeling.

It will provide senior managers with high-level skills and techniques to both perform basic econometric analysis, as well as interpret and apply econometrics outputs to a wide range of quantitative and qualitative problem-solving – covering all facets of hypothesis testing, variables selection, data types, statistical analysis and error tolerances, along with inferences-insights, correlations, and trends.

The Oxford Management Centre training Course will utilize inexpensive software applications linked within Excel to perform high-level econometric research-analysis-review on par with the “best practices” used in contemporary economics, corporate forecasting, and Wall Street investment banking – helping managers become fluent in the terminology and process-application of econometrics to everyday decision making contexts.


Specifically you will learn to:

  • Design and produce all facets of an original business research study
  • Collect and format various types of quantitative and qualitative data
  • Perform different models of multivariate econometric analyses with applications in Excel
  • Analyze detailed statistical output from econometric model-software
  • Draw inferences to support high-level managerial decision making
  • Write a detailed, yet succinct, executive summary of research findings

Who Should Attend?

  • CFOs looking to design-execute original finance-accounting econometric research studies
  • CEOs looking to improve quantitative-based decision -making
  • CROs looking to develop new forms and insights for marketing and competition research
  • Board Members looking to fully monetize Big Data for the shareholders/stakeholders
  • R+D/ Product Development Teams looking for direct connections
