The working language of the training, as well as the PowerPoint slides, will be English.

Intermediate. Participants are expected to be familiar with basic concepts in econometrics and statistics (regression analysis, hypothesis testing, dummy variables) and SPSS.

The training is free of charge. While similar hands-on trainings are quite expensive, ICARE fully covers the associated expenses for the participants, thus staying true to its charitable, social, scientific, and educational commitments. Upon successful completion of the training, the participants will be awarded a certificate of participation. To qualify for the certificate, participants must be present in all sessions.

During the training, the participants will familiarize themselves with the basics of conjoint and cluster analysis, ANOVA, parametric and non-parametric tests. The distinctive feature of this training is that it will illustrate (some of) the tools necessary for the analysis of marketing data.

The purpose of the training is to introduce basic quantitative concepts that can be applied in data analysis using SPSS. The training is intended for business executives, business consultants, business analysts, market researchers, business students, and other interested parties that deal with data.

After completing this training, participants will:
• Understand the basics of the cluster and conjoint analysis
• Get acquainted with the main parametric and non-parametric tests
• Use SPSS for parametric and non-parametric testing, cluster and conjoint analysis

During the training, we will use SPSS. The trial copy of SPSS with all the functionality and capabilities of the single user license which will operate for 30 days will be installed on your notebook by the training organizers before the start of the training free of charge.

A combination of PowerPoint presentations and in-class computer exercises will be used (the participants must bring their own notebooks to every session). The participants will be provided with training material ahead of time. A dynamic discussion and exchange of ideas through interactive class participation will be strongly encouraged.
