Categorize and compare different econometric techniques and understand how they can be used in empirical research and practical applications in the aviation industry.2. Develop analytical skills necessary to collect and analyze data related to the air transport industry for simple econometric modeling.3. Effectively use EVIEWS, SPSS, and LIMDEP statistical analysis software to conduct empirical studies using the air transport industry data.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
