Courses in choice modelling and stated choice survey design

The Choice Modelling Centre (CMC) runs two courses each year in London, a summer course on advanced choice modelling and a winter course on choice modelling and stated choice survey design.


The courses for 2019 are now available to be booked.


These courses are taught using our own R software for model estimation and NGene for stated choice design. The courses take place in a high quality central London teaching facility, are competitively priced, and sell out quickly each year. Book early to avoid disappointment and take advantage of early booking discounts.


The annual Advanced choice modelling course will be organised from 1-3 July 2019. Full details are available in the course flyer.


The annual Course in choice modelling and stated choice survey design will be organised from 25-29 November. Full details are available in the course flyer.


Delegates who attend both courses in consecutive years are entitled to a 10% discount for the advanced course.


For information on booking for either course, please see the CMC website.


The teaching staff for the courses are Professor Stephane Hess (both courses), Professor Michiel Bliemer (winter course) and Dr Thijs Dekker (summer course)


Professor Stephane Hess is the director of CMC and Professor of Choice Modelling at the University of Leeds.
