Cursusdoelen


At the end of the course, students:
  • Possess state-of-the-art knowledge and understanding of methods useful for research in business administration;
  • Are able to reflect critically on the content and methodology of research designs in business administration;
  • Are able to write a research proposal for their graduation thesis and present their proposal in an oral presentation.

Contribution to program learning goals
This course contributes to the development of academic competences (in particular the analysis of complex organizational problems, the application of theories and models, and the set-up and management of complex projects) as well as generic competences (in particular the collection, assessment and analysis of data sources, and the presentation of results, orally and in writing).
Inhoud
The course prepares students in the early stage of their master thesis research, in particular regarding their research proposal. It is an essential course for students conducting research in the field of business administration, as it deepens the understanding of the conduct of research in this field, widens the methodological repertoire, and develops the academic skills required for effective and efficient graduation research.
The course consists of three parts.
  1. Lectures: We start with two lectures about framing a research question, developing a theoretical framework, and data collection and analysis.
  2. Group assignment: Teams of 3 to 6 students prepare an assignment in which they make a manual on a specific empirical research method and how this method can be applied to innovation and/or entrepreneurship research.
  3. Presentation and review of research proposals: seminars are organized where students present their research proposals and other students give their review of the presented research proposals. All students are expected to present their own research proposal and review at least one research proposal of a fellow student.

Please mind that the recommended books are not obligatory, although especially the Field book on SPSS and the Miles & Huberman book on qualitative research are highly recommended
