My institution is updating some of its bachelor and master study programs in economics and business administration, and the question of choice of software for econometrics and related classes has come up. I wonder what the leading institutions are using and where the field is headed. Hence my questions:
- What software is currently most used for teaching econometrics and related subjects in leading study programs of economics (bachelor and master, or undergraduate and graduate)?
- What software is currently most used for teaching econometrics and related subjects in leading study programs of business administration (bachelor and master, or undergraduate and graduate)?
- Are there any pronounced tendencies of an ongoing switch to another software or a switch to take place in the near future (say, during 2020-2025)?
The question is intended to be objective. It does not ask for opinions on your favorite software (though I would not mind hearing some core points on that as long as they contribute to choosing an appropriate software for our study programs).
Edit (after the bounty was added): Please try to make the answer specific by including
- the year to which your knowledge refers;
- study program: economics, business, ...;
- type of institution/deparment: university vs. something else, economics department vs. business school vs. ...;
- tier: R1, R2 etc. or similar
- level: undergraduate/graduate or bachelor/master/Ph.D.;
- course: econometrics or some other (in case you may wish to share your experience in a related but different course).
