Feedback and Testimonials
General delegate feedback from the 2013 Econometrics Summer School at the University of Oxford:
"I found the interaction between theory and use of OxMetrics software was excellent. Indeed, I do not see how it could have been done any other way- very useful indeed."
"The most interesting feature is how both theoretic and empirical matters are combined. I think that on this level the courses did a rather good job. In addition, the limited number of participants enabled each of us to ask many questions leading the discussion to our respective fields of interest at times. I also liked the way we could interact with the assistants who several times helped me a fair bit to understand what the lecturer was explaining."
"The lecturers were outstanding � leaders in their fields. They were also very helpful when attendees had problems understanding some of the topics. An excellent experience that I will certainly be recommending to other colleagues and PhD students."
