Someone whispered in Pareto’s ear that fundamental knowledge in MATLAB is required for some courses next semester. Fear not, you non engineering people – Pareto is here to help economics students in need!
Next Friday, on the 12th of May, Pareto is organising a lecture covering the very basics of the MATLAB software. The lecture will last for 2 hours and include an introduction to programming concepts such at scripts, functions and objects. Then it will go into more details regarding MATLAB-specific functions, how to create variables and how to compute simple for- and if-loops.
Pareto hosted a PhD talk on the 5th of April. Henrik Andersson, a PhD student at the Institute for Housing and Urban research, presented his research which has a more interdisciplinary focus than your normal economics PhD student.
On the 7th of March, Pareto organised a Stata and Latex Session together with Fredrick Hoyles, who guided the second year students last year through their econometrics program. This was a great opportunity for the first year students to learn more about the two software programs for their current econometrics projects.
For those of you have have missed out, we have another case competition planned, this time with Copenhagen Economics!
It will be held on the 23/2 from 14.00-17.00 in B115 at Ekonomikum, Uppsala University. To apply, please send an email to email@example.com lastest the 19th of February.
Copenhagen Economics are searching for recruits so this is a great opportunity to get in contact with the company and insight in the work.
At the event you will:
– Meet with two young consultants from Copenhagen Economics
– Learn about working-life as an economics consultant
– Get to solve a stimulating case with your peers
– Get a chance to receive a tasty reward for an inspiring solution
Sadly, the Pareto Economic Forum was delayed by some early November snows, but we managed to reschedule and our inaugural forum was held on the 30th of November! We were visited by the Chief Economist of the Swedish Competition Agency, Martin Mandorff.
For more information regarding this event, see the flyer.
