Discrete Choice Modeling

Professor William Greene

Stern School of Business, New York University


National University of Ireland, Galway

with funding from NUI Galway's Millennium Fund

July 4-6, 2012

The National University of Ireland Galway, J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics is delighted to host a three day intensive course on 'Discrete Choice Modeling' with Professor William Greene of the Stern School of Business at New York University. Discrete choice models have become an essential tool for the analysis of individual choice behavior and can be applied to choice problems in a wide variety of diverse fields including environmental management, urban planning, transportation, energy, telecommunications, and healthcare. This course will present the most recent developments in theory and methods of estimation for discrete choice models. A number of applications from different areas of the professional literature to illustrate these techniques will be discussed.

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.

Course Fee

The course fee is €350 if registered on or before May 15th 2012 and €420 thereafter. Places are limited to 50 so early booking is recommended. The fee includes refreshments throughout the course.

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at the National University of Ireland, Galway in the Aras Moyola Building.

Volvo Ocean Race

Galway is a vibrant and exciting city all year round. However, if you need an added incentive for your trip, the final leg of the Volvo Ocean Race is due to arrive in Galway a few days before the start of the course. This will attract tens of thousands of visitors to Galway with many special events planned over a two week period. Delegates are recommended to book early to obtain best value in hotel rates.
