Requested action to this course: Drop ECO3421 Econometrics as a co-requisite.
Justification: Currently either ECO3411 Business/Economic Statistics or ECO3421 Econometrics meets the co-requisite for the course. Contingent on the approval of adding ECO3411 Business/Economic Statistics as a prerequisite for ECO3421 Econometrics (Log# 2010/11-015), it is no longer necessary to list ECO3411 Business/Economic Statistics and ECO3421 Econometrics as substitutes in the co-requisite. ECO3411 Business/Economic Statistics provides sufficient statistical concepts as a co-requisite for ECO3203 Intermediate Macroeconomics.

I got it. I agree that this represents an insignificant change since STA 2023 will still be a prereq. for ECO 3411.

Dear Dr. Hochwald,
As suggested by Faculty Association APC committee, I am writing to let you know about a curriculum change proposed by the department of Economics and Geography and its potential impact on the offering in STA2023 Elementary Statistics for Business.
We propose to replace STA2023 Elementary Statistics for Business with ECO3411 Business/Economic Statistics as a prerequisite for ECO3421 Econometrics. Currently both ECO3411 and ECO3421 have STA2023 as a pre-requisite. This change should not affect the demand for STA2023 by much if at all, since students who plan to take ECO3421 will still have to take STA2023 before they take the prerequisite ECO3411.
Please let me know when you received this notification. Thank you very much.
