SEM is a collection of statistical techniques that allow examination of a set of relations between one or more independent variables and one or more dependent variables. It aids in testing multiple dependencies and interdependencies between different latent variables. SEM helps researchers working in multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary areas to better define the problem and examine results with deeper insights. Analysis of a Moment Structures (AMOS) as a special tool has gained popularity in different fields of research and in practice viz. psychology, healthcare, social sciences, market research and organizational research. This course is designed to offer essential skills in using SEM-AMOS tools for in-depth data analysis.This one day program endeavours to cover the following areas:●    Introduction to structural equation modelling●    Introduction to confirmatory factor analysis●    Working with AMOS●    Cases and scenarios where structural Equation Modelling succeeds●    How SEM results can be used in research scenarios across various fieldsIBA endeavours to continually improve the delivery and content of the FRDPs and similar research workshops, and to make them relevant to the needs of research community.About the Program FacilitatorSanjit Kumar Roy is Senior Lecturer in Marketing at University of Western Australia, Australia.
