Admission Math Level and Student Performance: The Case of the Economics Course at HD, Copenhagen Business School

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper we analyze the study performance data for three cohorts of students for the course in Economics at the Business Diploma (herafter HD) study program at Copenhagen Business School. Out main findings are 1) that students with the lowest level of math from high school are performing worse that the remaining part of the students and 2) the effects of signing up for an exam preparatory course by a private company does not improve the performance in a measurable way. For this latter effect we take selection into this additional course into account and use the prior participation of a student into such courses as an exogenous driver.
