Online training: PLS Path Modeling approach (in French)


The PLS Path Modeling approach is an advanced tool that lets you analyse multiple tables using the Partial Least Square approach. It is conceptually similar to the structural equation modeling with latent variables. It is typically used in marketing, psychology and social sciences.

The PLS Path Modeling approach, 1 day training

This training will let you understand the PLS (Partial Least Square) Path Modeling approach. This method lays on the intersection between structural equation modeling involving latent variables and multiple table analysis methods. Those two angles will be tackled during this training. The training is followed by practical application exercises and tests to be submitted online for correction.
