Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course focuses on the economic assessment of public and non-profit companies/institutions by using benchmarking as an instrument for strategic planning and control.

The main part of the course consists of benchmarking Decision Making Units (DMUs) such as public institutions, associations, and hospitals. An introduction on benchmarking approaches is provided with a special focus on Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Different efficiency concepts are illustrated on several examples.

Assessment and permitted materials

Each student group selects a particular economic sector (e.g., education, environment/energy, health, disaster management, recreation) to benchmark DMUs. First, each student group reports on a selected topic of pitfalls and protocols in DEA (homework 1). Second, each student group discusses and presents particularities of the selected economic sector and the related DMUs (homework 2). Third, each student group investigates a selected research paper from the literature of the selected economic sector (e.g., education, environment/energy, health, disaster, recreation).
