On the Second day, Dr Anandkuttan B Unnithan handled high advanced statistical tools such as factor analysis, cluster analysis, classification and logistic regression. The real examples wiped out the monotony of analytics.

On the Third day Dr N Vivek, equipped the participants with knowledge of Structural equation modelling. The session started with the theoretical framework of SEM which explained the nuances of path analysis and SEM. This was followed by a hands on session on AMOS software.

During the valedictory ceremony Rev Fr Josekutty, Principal, Kristu Jayanti College, appreciated the organizers and all the participants for the successful conduct of the FDP


Econometrics for Business Research
Date: 11/03/2016 – 12/03/2016
Number of beneficiaries: In-house:33
List of Resource Persons with details: Dr.Sanjay Rastogi, Associate Professor, Indian Institute of Foregin Trade(IIFT),New Delhi;
Dr.Ajay Kumar Chauhan, Area chair-Finance, Institute of Management Technology(IMT), Ghaziabad,UP

Objective: To impart knowledge on econometrics for Business research and to promote the lvel of financial modelling in the area of econometrics

The hands-on technical session on the first day of the FDP was handled by Prof Sanjay Rastogi. He commenced with the basic input on bivariate regression, interpretation of regression coefficients and goodness of the model. He led the group of research enthusiasts into multiple regression models with all the necessary assumptions of autocorrelation, heteroscedasticity and multicollinearity. Apt case studies were solved to enable the participants to understand the basis of multivariate analysis using econometrics. The sessions later moved on to develop the model using case studies. The study ended with an in depth discussion on dummy variable regression

The second day was totally dedicated to time series analysis. The resource person was Prof Ajay Kumar Chauhan, Associate professor, IMt, Ghaziabad. The day began with an understanding of the features of time series using simulation. The participants were helped in practically removing trend, managing autocorrelation, removing unit root, assessing causality, establishing stationarity of aseroes etc. Various types of transformations to make a series stationary were practically discussed. The resource person later led the participants into forecasting using ARIMA models and multivariate causality. The FDP witnessed the intellectual confluence of 33 research enthusiasts from 25 institutions hailing from 6 states in the country
