The whole program reaches an excellent balance!

I learnt a lot about duration analysis, including both theories and how to do empirical analysis with it. The lab sessions are very helpful in improving my understandings of the contents of the lectures. The course is great, and the dinners and excursions are also great.

Day 1: Definitions and Fundamentals
Day 2: Models and Distributional Assumptions
