Leerdoelen Students who have successfully finished this course should be able to apply multivariate analysis methods at an advanced level in (academic) business and economic research;
have solid, state-of-the-art knowledge of potential (mis-)application of a large set of multivariate analysis methods; understand the methodological underpinnings of the methods thoroughly; and compare and judge the suitability of a broad range of multivariate analysis methods for a research problem at hand.
Omschrijving The course will be lectured in multiple sessions (each on two consecutive days). Each session deals with one or more related topics, such as: Regression Analysis; Analysis of variate roles of third variables in the linear model, Hierarchical linear models; Factor analysis.
Given the learning objectives of this course and the target group, the methodology of these analysis methods will be explained and discussed, but not in extreme technical detail. The focus of the course is on accurate application of the methods.
