Magdalena Erdem, ASSEE 2014

The course justified my expectations completely! 

The organization of the course was excellent and I do not hesitate to recommend ASSEE to anyone who wants to learn some theory of interest as well as practical aspects of econometrics.


Through systematic interaction participants will be encouraged to compare their approaches and examine their research work. A unique opportunity will be given to advanced doctoral students to present their own work and to discuss it with the Distinguished Guest Professor. The Advanced Summer School Series on Economics and Econometrics facilitates the establishment of contacts between young researchers coming from various universities and research institutions throughout Europe.
