Title: Econometrics Analyses of Study Duration

The lecture presents preliminary results from an analysis of duration of studying at the master program Applied Economics and Finance at Copenhagen Business School. The data will mainly represent the 2010 cohort of students. The length of the study time of this cohort is modelled using various independent variables such as age, gender, nationality, intermediate results such as duration time until first year courses are passed, GPA of the first year courses and an indicator for whether a student writes his/her thesis alone or together with a fellow student. 

About Lisbeth la Cour: la Cour is Professor with special assignments in Time Series Econometrics at the Department of Economics of Copenhagen Business School. She conducts several research projects with an empirical and applied focus using econometric techniques to discover the causal relations in the data. Examples include Productivity and FDI spill-over; Exchange rates and monetary economics; Education, immigration and crime; study duration analysis; Public procurement analysis
