Most of the courses are mainly financed by the participants. However, the School of Econometrics and Applied Statistics has a general policy of low fees in order to promote the dissemination of new statistical techniques and methodological approaches inspired by the most recent advances in academic research. Besides, we aim to allow young researchers and Ph.D students to follow very specialized research courses in econometrics and statistics, which are not available in their University. Hence, the fees are particularly low for graduate and Ph.D students.
The registration fees include:
For some courses, scholarships may be offer by our sponsors to a limited number of participants (Ph.D students typically). This possibility will be mentioned in the course description.
All the courses are taught by French or international academics, specialized in the field of the course. The general policy of the school is to offer advanced trainings in the perspective AtoB (Academics to Business) or AtoA.
The participants are expected to have at least a Master's degree in economics, business, statistics, IT and/or econometrics or in relevant topics with a strong background in statistics. In the description of the course, there is an indication of the background that participants should possess in order to take full advantage of the course.
Practical sessions will be held in a lecture room, not in a computer lab. Participants must bring a laptop in order to follow these sessions. The software used in classes will be mentioned for each course.
At the conclusion of the course, participants will receive a certificate for the number of hours attended. All courses require an average of twice the lecture hours for readings, pre-readings and class preparation. Interested students should check with their universities to see if these hours are transferable into ECTS credits.
