Mode of delivery
The course consists of presentations by the professor, interactive class discussions in which active participation is required, and group exercises. It is absolutely necessary to prepare and send the assignments in advance in order to attend the classes with prepared contents and concrete examples. Substantial time will be devoted to the presentation and discussion of doctoral students’ ongoing research projects and the course settings are designed to allow for constructive feedback. In function of the sanitary situation, certain sessions and group exercises can be organized online.
Recommended or required readings
- The course will be partly based on the following book, which students can but do not need to acquire:
- Saunders, M. N. K., Thornhill, A., & Lewis, P. (2018), Research Methods for Business Students, Harlow: Pearson.
- Additional readings will be provided in the Lola section dedicated to the course.
Assessment methods and criteria
The course grade will be determined by a set of intermediary assignments (40%) as well as by a final work (50%) and its presentation (10%).
The final work consists in writing a full paper (max. 12,000 words), its abstract and the cover letter explaining why you think the paper should be of interest to the targeted journal.
Participation in all sessions is compulsory. English will be the only language used. Assignments have to be delivered in this language. Registration is required before October 15, 2022.
At no time is it tolerated to use materials from former academic years or other sources. No plagiarism of any kind will be tolerated.
