About the Project
This study analyses bank efficiency. We apply an advanced methodological approach introduced by Simar and Wilson (2007) to examine bank efficiency. The objective of our study is threefold. First, we analyse bank efficiency in by applying an advanced semi-parametric two stage method introduced by Simar and Wilson (2007). Second, we identify the determinants of bank efficiency. Third, we provide a detailed analysis of bank efficiency for different ownership structures and bank size. PhD/DBA candidates can apply this method to a single country or a panel data. An advanced knowledge of R software would be an advantage.
