Article
Full-text available
Prosumers are households that are both producers and consumers of electricity. A prosumer has a grid-connected decentralized production unit and makes two types of exchanges with the grid: energy imports when the local production is insufficient to match the local consumption and energy exports when local production exceeds it. There exists two sys...

This paper evaluates how three different international accreditations for business schools (AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA) affect student preferences , expressed via enrollment decisions. Focusing on the French context , we build a relative preference indicator to compare schools using data collected by a central clearinghouse that allocates students to sc...

We use various economic and pedagogical concepts to understand the specificities of MOOC (Massive Online Open Courses) platforms. We discuss how the private provision of MOOCs can be sustained. Using the theory of multisided platforms, we analyze five ways to monetize the MOOC business. We then claim that MOOC platforms can play a key transformativ...

This paper aims at assessing whether universities improve their enrollment in traditional taught in-person programs by providing MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). Focusing on French universities, we look at the impact on enrollment figures of providing MOOC on France Université Numérique (FUN), a MOOC platform. We find that new students intake o...

Article

This paper studies the determinants of the intellectual property license of the Massive Open Online Courses provided on a French platform. While they can opt for a traditional license, the majority of courses chooses among Creative Commons licenses. Considering the ordering in terms of degree of openness of the licenses, we study the course-, teach...
Article
Full-text available
This paper empirically evaluates the impact of fiscal decentralization on the performance of higher education systems. To test this relationship, we build up a panel dataset composed of European countries. Country-level performance is measured by an indicator using data from the Shanghai ranking. Using a dynamic panel approach, we find that a highe...
Article
Full-text available
The goal of this paper is to study the demand factors driving enrollment in massive open online courses. Using course level data from a French MOOC platform, we study the course, teacher and institution related characteristics that influence the enrollment decision of students, in a setting where enrollment is open to all students without administr...
Article
Full-text available
Media outlets often produce higher education rankings. One feature of these media platforms is that they are largely financed, via advertising, by the higher education institutions they also rank. This paper investigates the relationship between university advertising in the Times Higher Education magazine and their place in the ranking published i...
Article
In Wallonia, Belgium's southern region, the distribution component of the overall electricity retail tariff is essentially volumetric, i.e. based on the users' energy consumption (in €/kWh). Residential prosumers, moreover, are connected to the grid via a net-metering system. In this paper, we rely on a sophisticated multi-agent tariff simulator –...
Article
Energy consumers can invest in photovoltaic (PV) panels and become prosumers. The benefit of such an investment depends on the regulatory framework. We consider a population of heterogeneous consumers, with respect to both the cost of decentralized production and their degree of self-consumption.it is efficient to have investment by low-cost and hi...

Article
Full-text available
The deployment of decentralized productions units (DPU) like rooftop solar panels is a major challenge for a transition towards greener energy sources. Under a net metering system where the meter runs backward when there is excessive PV production, the electricity produced by a solar panel is valued at the retail price. Higher retail prices thus en...
Article
Full-text available
This paper studies the decision to synchronize household electricity consumption and production. While this behavior is beneficial for the energy system as a whole, it is not encouraged by a net-metering system. Relying on a large-scale survey conducted among households with solar PV in Wallonia, we investigate the factors impacting their decision...
Article
Tarif prosumer : ces deux mots ont fait couler beaucoup d’encre dernièrement. Alors qu’ils utilisent le réseau de distribution d’électricité pour injecter et pour prélever de l’électricité, les prosumers, principalement des particuliers ayant installés des panneaux photovoltaïques sur leur toit, ne contribuent presque pas à son financement. Cela s’...

En quelques semaines seulement, l'UCL a vu près de 20.000 personnes s'inscrire à un de ses cours, intitulé Paradigms of Compter Programming; 15.000 autres se sont inscrites au cours International Human Rights et quelques milliers à deux autres cours. Ces inscriptions, ainsi que d'autres qui ne cessent d'arriver de jour en jour, proviennent de 170 p...

Article
This paper studies the links between non-renewable and intermittent renewable energy sources in the production of electricity. Using U.S. state-level data from 1998 to 2015, we find that the relationship between the price of natural gas and investments in solar and wind capacity is non-linear and can be represented by an inverted U-shape. Hence, fo...

Focusing on European countries, this article investigates the link between market-oriented institutions, as measured by the Economic Freedom Index, and the production of energy from renewable sources. A dynamic panel approach shows that this correlation is positive and significant while the subcomponents of the Economic Freedom Index reveal that no...

Chapter
Academia is a rather awkward sector to (ad)minister. It is home to peculiarities such as academic tenure, peer-reviewed publications, and shared governance. Its higher education institutions are a key engine for local economies and they also play an increasingly active role at an international level, linked both to their teaching and research activ...
Article
This paper looks at the relationship between higher education ministers and the performance of the sector that they govern. Using an original panel dataset with the characteristics of European higher education ministers, we find that having a past experience in the sector leads to a higher level of performance, as measured by ranking data. Making a...

The Governance and Finance of Higher Education: a Microeconomic Approach This article focuses on the functioning of the higher education system by means of a microeconomic analysis. It offers a synthesis of the work that I have pursued during my PhD thesis on issues related to the financing and the governance of the institutions active in the secto...
Article
This paper investigates the link between economic freedom and the production of energy using renewable sources, with a specifi�c focus on European countries. Using a dynamic panel approach, we �find that this relationship is positive and signi�ficant. The results of our instrumental variable approach indicate further the causal channel between econ...

This paper develops a stylized model that describes the relationship between the participation of professors to the board of their university and its performance. Despite an internal bias and the opportunity cost of having democratic institutions, the presence of professors can be needed due to the specific knowledge they have about their employing...

This paper examines the market conditions that facilitate the entry of for-profit institutions into the higher education market. I show how, despite significant government financial support for public institutions, for-profit institutions may still find it profitable to enter the market. They do so by spending large amounts of money on advertising...

This paper studies the specificities of competitive forces at stake in the higher education market. Using a theoretical approach, we study the implications of a tuition fee deregulation. Even by assuming ex-ante homogenous insti-tutions, we show how two peculiarities of higher education institutions make them less likely to compete fiercely by decr...

We start by using various economic and pedagogical concepts to understand the specificities of MOOC (Massive Online Open Courses) platforms. We then discuss how the private provision of MOOCs, seen as pure public goods, can be sustained. Based on the theory of multisided platforms, we analyse five ways to monetize the MOOC business. Our conclusion...
