Details

Students at Wirtschaftsuniversit<e4>t Wien (http://www.wu.ac.at/) can study abroad visiting one of currently 17 CEMS universities (Community of European Management Schools and International Companies). Dittrich et al. (1998) conduct and analyze a survey of 303 students to examine the student's preferences for 6 universities: London School of Economics, HEC Paris, Universit<e0> Commerciale Luigi Bocconi (Milano), Universit<e4>t St. Gallen, ESADE (Barcelona), Handelsh<U+001A7CEB>olan i Stockholm. To identify reasons for the preferences, several subject covariates (including foreign language competence, gender, etc.) have been assessed. Furthermore, several object covariates are attached to preference (and preference1998): the universities' field of specialization (economics, management science, finance) and location (Latin country, or other).

The correct data are available in the online complements to Dittrich et al. (1998). However, the accompanying analysis was based on an erroneous version of the data in which the choices for the last comparison pair (Barcelona : Stockholm) were accidentally reversed. See the corrigendum in Dittrich et al. (2001) for further details. The variable preference provides the correct data and can thus be used to replicate the analysis from the corrigendum (Dittrich et al. 2001). For convenience, the erroneous version is provided in preference1998 which can therefore be used to replicate the (incorrect) original analysis (Dittrich et al. 1998).
