NUIG have done a good service by organising this. I could not recommend this highly enough to any graduate student in Europe who is working on applied microeconometrics. The lecturer is among the most highly regarded econometrics professors in the world and has written some of the most widely used textbooks and software. For those outside of Ireland, Galway is a gem of a place to visit and this would be a good excuse to do so.
Topics in Microeconometrics
Professor William Greene
Stern School of Business, New York University
National University of Ireland, Galway
June 1-3, 2011
The National University of Ireland Galway, J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics is delighted to host a three day intensive course on 'Topics in Microeconometrics' with Professor William Greene of the Stern School of Business at New York University.
This course will introduce the student to methods and models used to analyze cross section and panel data. We will depart from the linear regression model to specifications for binary and censored data, ordered choices, count data and multinomial choices. The discussion will present basic models for cross section data then introduce theory and methods for extensions to panel data and stated choice experiments.
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 if registered on or before April 15th 2011 and €420 thereafter. 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.
