Advanced Econometrics
Econometric methods are important in many fields of management research. In order to derive meaningf...

ul and robust results, one has to know these methods and understand them well. This course shall convey advanced econometric methods, with a focus on approaches to identification such as instrumental variables and propensity score matching. Depending on the participants’ needs, the emphasis can be shifted to some extent; we will discuss the selection of topics at the kick-off session. The focus will be on applicable knowledge, not so much on details of the theory. Having participated in an introductory Ph.D. level course in econometrics is required, such as “Applied Econometrics: An Introduction” by Professor Hottenrott.

rting with the theory of consumer choice, the course will discuss different types of choice data available. The main part of the course will focus on choice experiments. It discusses the specifics of choice experiments, possible experimental designs and data collection procedures. Participants will be familiarized with data handling and analysis considering conditional logit, random parameters logit and latent class analysis. To obtain an overview of the literature, participants will present papers from their respective field.

Sustainable Operations Management (Methods/Theory)
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 in a multi-method approach to provide insights and sustainable solutions.

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. The case provides first-hand experience of the development of multi-method approaches for sustainable operations.
