Performance of the Different Methods of Study Financing: A Measurement through the Data Envelopment Analysis Method
AbstractFinancial hardship can significantly undermine post-secondary studentsâ ability to attain their academic goals: completing their training and obtaining degrees with good grades. This study considers which method of financing studiesâloans and bursaries from the Government, student aid granted directly by universities, scholarships or on-campus jobs, off-campus jobs or parental financial contributionâwill best help students attain academic success. For these purposes, we use a non-parametric data envelopment method, the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) which will enable us to determine a theoretically efficient production frontier against which the efficiency of students will be measured. Depending on the financing methods used, the conclusions of this study show efficiency differences.
