Analysis of Financial Data teaches the basic methods and techniques of data analysis to finance students, by showing them how to apply such techniques in the context of real-world empirical problems.
Adopting a largely non-mathematical approach Analysis of Financial Data relies more on verbal intuition and graphical methods for understanding.
Key features include:
- Coverage of many of the major tools used by the financial economist e.g. correlation, regression, time series analysis and methods for analyzing financial volatility.
- Extensive use of real data examples, which involves readers in hands-on computer work.
- Mathematical techniques at a level suited to MBA students and undergraduates taking a first course in the topic.
