Bayesian data analysis and cognitive modeling
The advantages of a Bayesian approach to data analysis have been known for a long time (e.g., Edward...

s, Lindman, & Savage, 1963). Recent developments in computer science have made the practical application of these approaches accessible. Bayesian methods avoid many of the problems of frequentist methods—such as not being able to confirm the null hypothesis or that p-values depend on the goals during participant recruitment (e.g., Wagenmakers et al., 2017; Kruschke, 2014). In addition, Bayesian statistics is more intuitive than frequentist statistics, in that it evaluates a hypothesis given the data rather than the other way round. Bayesian approaches are therefore likely to eventually replace frequentist approaches in data analysis. The goal of this course is to introduce students to the logic and practice of Bayesian statistics as well as to provide an introduction to cognitive modeling.

Econometrics II: Causal Inference (formerly: Advanced Econometrics: Causal Inference)
Econometric analysis aims at uncovering economic mechanisms, their causes and effects. Understanding...

the mechanisms behind a phenomenon is indispensable if one is to give advice to managers or policy makers, or to build theory. Simple regressions on cross-sectional data show associations, but not causality, so we need more sophisticated methods. This course shall convey econometric methods that allow causal inference, or at least to come closer to uncovering causal effects. The focus will be on applicable knowledge, less on details of the theory. The course is part of a series of econometrics courses at TUM School of Management that also comprises “Econometrics I: Research Design and Estimation Methods” by Professor Hottenrott and “Econometrics III: Advanced Econometrics and Machine Learning” by Professor Farbmacher.

 

Topics comprise various methods to address selection issues and come close to causality:

  1. Randomized controlled trials and natural experiments
  2. Matching
  3. Regression discontinuity design
  4. Instrumental variables
  5. Panel data
  6. Differences-in-Differences
  7. Heckman selection models

Registration: Please send an email to Office.cdt@wi.tum.de with a short registration request that includes your name and the title of your paper. Registration deadline: 18.04.2022.

Formally, each participant requires a written paper draft. This paper will be reviewed by one other course participant. The paper should be a working paper and not be published.

FAQ: Which paper should I submit for the course?

  • You should be interested in developing your paper. This is given if your paper is part of your dissertation, or if you intend to publish it in a scientific journal or in the proceedings of a conference.
  • All types of papers are welcome—including literature reviews, theoretical papers, empirical papers.
  • It is not necessary that your paper is fully completed. Nevertheless, it must be at least 8,000 words long. Empirical papers must at least report some (early) findings.
  • There are no formatting requirements for the working paper.
  • It is not possible to submit your paper after the first course day. This is because your paper will be distributed on the first course day for peer-review.

The course is limited to 15 participants (first come, first served). The course will be offered as part of the International Doctoral Network in Information Systems – IDIS.

Qualitative Research and Developing Grounded Theory in Social Sciences
Qualitative research has gone through a renaissance in many social sciences over the past two decade...

s. Albeit operating in a mainly quantitative field, agricultural and applied economists have found themselves using qualitative research approaches, especially in dealing with wicked problems, such as sustainability, and small numbers of cases, such as in agribusiness contexts or institutional economics issues. Often perceived as exploratory research, qualitative approaches offer much more than initial data for framing a quantitative project when used in a rigorous and skilled manner. This course provides an introduction to qualitative research paradigm(s), qualitative research methods (e.g., in-depth interviews, (participant) observation, focus group discussions, and action research), issues in qualitative research (e.g., the researcher as the research instrument, reflexivity), qualitative data analysis, and the development of theory based on qualitative (and quantitative) data.

The seminar is limited to 5 participants.

The course …(1) equips participants with tools and information how to preprocess textual data
(2) provides an overview of the state-of-the-art methods in Natural Language Processing (e.g., pre-trained language models),
(3) offers guidance regarding the application of these methods to various textual content, which enables the participants to use these techniques within their own research projects.
(4) gives access to an interdisciplinary workshop where international guest speakers present their latest research projects

The course provides two lectures, three interactive sessions, a two-day workshop with international guest speakers as well as a presentation day, during which participants are expected to present their textual analysis related research proposals. Participation in the pre-workshop day, active participation during the workshop (presentation of own research project or discussion of research presentation), and presentation of the own research proposal are necessary to pass this course.

The course starts on 17th Novermber 2021, one day prior to a two-day interdisciplinary workshop on NLP at the TUM Campus in Heilbronn. At the pre-workshop day there will be two lectures, followed by three interactive sessions in which participants will be able to apply state-of-the art NLP methods to different forms of text. The two-day workshop contains multiple presentations of recent research projects in Finance and Management that leverage on textual analysis.

Each participant should actively participate in the workshop by either presenting his/her own textual related project at the workshop or by discussing a paper that is presented at the workshop.
In addition, each participant is expected to draft a textual analysis-related research project which has to be presented in a separate virtual meeting about two weeks after the workshop. The allowed presentation time is 20 minutes, followed by a ten minutes Q&A.

It is recommended to participate in this course if you are currently conducting or plan to conduct textual analysis within one of your research projects.

Sustainable Operations Management
Sustainability plays an increasingly important role in operations management. Quantifying environmen...

tal impacts as well as considering them in management decisions requires advanced multi-method approaches. Participants will therefore be qualified to combine methodologies from different domains to create effective decision support. Such multi-method based approaches are at the core of modern operations research reaching out to neighboring disciplines.

We investigate how sustainability assessments can be obtained and integrated in modelling approaches for operations and supply chain management. The course includes an introduction to sustainability and to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), which is one of the most commonly used quantitative tools for the systematic evaluation of environmental aspects. We will also introduce multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) approaches such as multi-objective optimization (MOO) and show how both LCA and MCDM can be combined to provide insights.

The state-of-the-art will be summarized drawing on recent textbooks on sustainable operations and MCDM, review papers, and research papers. However, a large part of the class will be devoted to the solution of a new case recently developed by the lecturers (Verena Depping, Martin Grunow, Bryndis Stefansdottir: How to Quantitatively Assess the Sustainability of Supply Chains: Learning from the Example of Novel Dairy Products, The Case Center, Case – No. 619-0051-1, 2019, https://casecent.re/p/166493)

Advanced Econometrics: Causal Inference
Econometric analysis aims at uncovering economic mechanisms, their causes and effects. Understanding...

the mechanisms behind a phenomenon is indispensable if one is to give advice to managers or policy makers, or to build theory. Simple regressions on cross-sectional data show associations, but not causality, so we need more sophisticated methods. This course shall convey econometric methods that allow causal inference, or at least to come closer to uncovering causal effects. The focus will be on applicable knowledge, less on details of the theory.

 

Topics comprise various methods to address selection issues and come close to causality:
1. Randomized controlled trials and natural experiments
2. Matching
3. Regression discontinuity design
4. Instrumental variables
5. Panel data
6. Differences-in-Differences
7. Heckman selection models

 

Prerequisites: Participants need to have econometrics knowledge corresponding to an introductory Ph.D. level course in econometrics. Ideally, they should have participated in such a course, e.g. in “Applied Econometrics: An Introduction” by Professor Hottenrott. They should also have basic knowledge of STATA or R. Free self-study material for STATA and R can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/ econometricsacademy, and for R specifically here (introduction) and here (regressions).

Also, questions around the PhD process and academic careers will be tackled together. By immersing participants in such a “boot-camp” for entrepreneurship research, the intensive experience condensed in a week will have long term pay-offs when it comes to pre-empting many questions and uncertainties that normally arise during a thesis-writing process. The course is usually worth 5 ECTS, but can be stretched to 6 ECTS by individual assignments.

The course will cover investment opportunities in the private equities sphere with a focus on the po...

ssible vehicles in that sphere, the corporate governance aspects involved in the private equity market, the financial regulation of private equity and potential tax issues, and advantages and disadvantages of the various forms of private equity available, corporate as well as non-corporate.

 

These topics will be discussed generally and with a special focus on South Africa. South Africa is the second largest economy in Africa. Its economy is diversified and the most industrialized in Africa. It also is the only African G20 member. The economy is based on a large mining sector, but agriculture, financial services, manufacturing and a growing Fintech sector also form important components of the economy. In total, South Africa has one of the few upper middle class economies on the African continent according to the World Bank.

 

From an investment perspective, South Africa is regarded as an ideal emerging market destination. Arguably, investors seeking to invest in an emerging market consider various factors before deciding to invest. This holds true for every economy, but even more so in an emerging market economy. Relevant factors would be anything from efficient infrastructure, a predictable and independent judiciary, a skilled workforce, and a state of the art financial industry. Together with his doctoral students, Professor Stevens will analyze financial markets in South Africa and their regulatory context. The main outcome of his course will be the analysis, whether South Africa is a safe destination from a financial markets and regulatory perspective. The course will also provide an overview of how South Africa’s Financial Markets Act deals with insider trading.

 

This course is equivalent to 4 ECTS and 22.5 hours class time.
