Date(s) - 08/11/2021 - 17/12/2021 All Day


This six-parts online course participants to the state-of-the-art of partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) using the SmartPLS 3 software. The first day of the course provides a profound introduction to PLS-SEM. Participants will learn the foundations of PLS-SEM and how to apply it by means of the SmartPLS 3 software.

The course continues with advanced topics including mediation, moderation, higher-order models, and the importance-performance map analysis (IPMA). At the end of the course, a live (online) wrap-up session includes case study exercises, questions and answers, and an outlook on additional advanced topics.
