Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course is an introductory class on empirical methods and data analysis which precedes the follow-up class “Empirical Methods II”. The goal of this introductory course is for students to learn the fundamental techniques and obtain the basic skills required in empirical research. Our theoretical sessions will cover tools and stages required for running empirical projects (e.g. research design, measurement, methods of data collection) with a special focus on the pre-evaluation stage of an empirical work. Our applied sessions will introduce the students to basic programming skills, allowing them to prepare their data for analysis using statistical programming software. Students will participate by reading and presenting scientific articles in some of the highest ranked strategy journals. Knowledge gained in this course is also applied during a project where students actively develop the necessary steps for conducting their own empirical research projects.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students will be assessed based on their class participation (class work, home assignments and a presentation of an empirical paper), a written exam and an empirical project (own paper and a presentation of own findings). The final project (including presentation) accounts for 40%, the exam for 30% and class participation accounts for 30% of the final grade.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Please be aware that attendance during the first session of this course is absolutely mandatory. If students miss the first session without contacting the lecturer in writing (at the very latest until 24 hours before the first session), giving a relevant reason/proof (e.g. illness=doctor's certificate, exam=confirmation by the examiner) for their absence, they will be deregistered from the course and their place will automatically be awarded to the next in line on the waiting list. After that, students are allowed to miss 10% of the classes without any consequences (2.25 hours). Exceeding this threshold would result in failing the class. In order to pass the course, at least 50% of the total 100% are required. Please note that TURNITIN will be used in order to test all written coursework (e.g. the final project) for possible plagiarism.
