About the course

The three day intensive course will take the form of lectures and tutorial computer lab sessions. Day one will be lectured by Associate Professor Zelenyuk, and dedicated to an introduction to the subject and is especially useful to those who have no or little background in the area. During this first day, participants are expected to develop a general understanding of the main concepts used in the research area of productivity and efficiency analysis via DEA and be introduced to relevant software for some practical implementations. Day one will also be a stepping-stone to the following two days of the course, lectured by Professor Fukuyama, where these concepts will be covered in more detail to give students a better understanding for better use in both empirical and theoretical research. Day two will cover the introduction to Network DEA and day three will look at advanced application of Network DEA.
