Participants will be introduced to a set of parametric, semi- and non-parametric econometric models with applications that illustrate each of the models. The applications will include production, cost, distance functions, etc. Special emphasis will be given to modelling and estimating production/cost efficiency models. By the end of the class participants will be able to undertake a research project using either parametric and/or semi- and non-parametric approaches.
