Professor William Greene
Stern School of Business, New York University
National University of Ireland, Galway
with funding from NUI Galway's Millennium Fund
July 4-6, 2012
The National University of Ireland Galway, J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics is delighted to host a three day intensive course on 'Discrete Choice Modeling' with Professor William Greene of the Stern School of Business at New York University. Discrete choice models have become an essential tool for the analysis of individual choice behavior and can be applied to choice problems in a wide variety of diverse fields including environmental management, urban planning, transportation, energy, telecommunications, and healthcare. This course will present the most recent developments in theory and methods of estimation for discrete choice models. A number of applications from different areas of the professional literature to illustrate these techniques will be discussed.
The presentation will include roughly ten morning classroom meetings. In the afternoon of each day, we will do some hands on analysis using “live” data sets and a familiar computer package.
The course fee is €350. Places are limited to 50 so early booking is recommended. The fee includes refreshments throughout the course.
The conference will be held at the National University of Ireland, Galway in the Aras Moyola Building.
Immediately prior to the econometrics summer school on July, 3rd 2012, NUI Galway is holding the Applied Microeconometrics and Public Policy Conference. Please click here for details.
Volvo Ocean Race
Galway is a vibrant and exciting city all year round. However, if you need an added incentive for your trip, the final leg of the Volvo Ocean Race is due to arrive in Galway a few days before the start of the course. This will attract tens of thousands of visitors to Galway with many special events planned over a two week period. Delegates are recommended to book early to obtain best value in hotel rates.
