This course is concerned with the nature of social science inquiry. It is intended for students in  the  business  and  management  disciplines  and  those  early  in  their  masters and  doctoral research program. The course will take the form of a seminar. Students will be pre-assigned readings and will lead the discussion. The course is broken into four sections:

  1. an introductory overview to the philosophy of science,
  2. a review of epistemology (the nature and scope of knowledge),
  3. a review of ontology (the what can be said to exist), and
  4. specific applications to the major disciplinary areas.

Contents: Many variables of interest to social, political and behavioral scientists are non-continuous, either through nature or through measurement. Outcomes like vote choice, social class, condom use, and/or number of Facebook friends necessarily violate key assumptions of the simple linear regression framework and require other model estimation strategies. Although advances in software have made estimation of these models trivial, model non-linearities make post-estimation interpretation difficult and require investigators to make choices about which aspects of the data space best represent underlying social dynamics.

Universität Hamburg-Workshop: The economics of biomedical innovation (02.06.2015)

Institution: University of Hamburg

Lecturer: Prof. Frank Lichtenberg, Professor of Business, Columbia University

Place: University of Hamburg

Language of instruction: English

Registration: For further information on the registration process, please see this link.

Contents: There is considerable debate about the social returns to biomedical research and innovation. The primary purpose of this course is to discuss econometric methods for evaluating the overall impact of biomedical innovation — much of which is embodied in new products and procedures — on longevity and health. We will consider analyses based upon a variety of research designs, medical innovation measures, health outcome measures, and populations. We will also analyze the impact of various public policies on biomedical innovation.
