Econometrics at Monash University

My first academic position was in the (then) Department of Econometrics and Operations Research at Monash University ( in Melbourne, Australia). I was there for nine wonderful years from the mid 1970's to the mid 1980's.

Now re-named the Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics, the Monash group continues to rank among the very best in the world, as is evidenced by this recent score from IDEAS.

This makes me feel really good.

Great job!

  1. HI Dave: I know ( we never met but have spoken a few times ) Ralph Snyder who is there. Just him being
    there tells me that it's a very strong department.

    1. It really is, and always has been. Ralph has been there since the mid 70's. Apart from his other contributions, he would have to be the leading authority on exponential smoothing.
