VHB ProDok-Kurs “Empirical Corporate Finance”

Empirical Corporate Finance

The course is intended as an introduction to research in empirical corporate finance and covers both corporate finance topics as well as methods with a strong emphasis on endogeneity and identification. The general objective of the course is to present some of the most influential work in corporate finance. We will put a particular emphasis on current research, which uses state-of–the–art empirical methods. This course will provide students with a toolbox and working knowledge of cross-sectional and panel data empirical methods for use in corporate finance research. The course also aims to encourage students to explore interesting research questions in corporate finance. Finally, students will learn how to think about empirical research (questions) critically.

VHB ProDok-Kurs “Longitudinal Data Analysis: Event History Models”

Longitudinal Data Analysis: Event History Models

The life course of organizations as well as individuals is characterized by a succession of important events. Organizations change their strategies, their structure, their leadership etc. and might cease to exist at some point in time. Individuals move from one job to another, climb up the career ladder, or get fired. These events indicate transitions from a certain origin state, e.g. an organization before a change of the CEO, to a certain destination state, here: the same organization with a new CEO. The best empirical tool for the analysis of these transitions are techniques of event history analysis. These methods, which belong to the wider class of longitudinal data analysis, are tremendously important in management research. An impressive amount of studies in this field addresses research questions, which are related to transitions from one state to another one.

This course aims at providing students with the most relevant techniques of event history analysis. At the end of this course, students should be able to understand the theoretical concepts of event history analysis as well as to apply these methods by themselves.

VHB ProDok Kurs “Foundational Theories of Strategic Management Research”

Foundational Theories of Strategic Management Research

Date: 19.07.-22.07.2021
Abstract:

The main objective of the course is to familiarize doctoral students with the basic assumptions, concepts and theories underlying the field. In essence, we want to help doctoral students to become independent scholars who are knowledgeable on the major theories in the field of strategy.

We typically start with reading the seminal work on the topic, followed by examining several recent empirical applications of the theory. The course is comprehensive, encompassing the following domains: Overview of the field of Strategic Management, Industrial Organization Approaches to Strategy, Resource-based View Approaches to Strategy, Transaction Cost Economics and Vertical Integration, Real Options and Sequential Decision Making, Principal-Agent Theory and Corporate Governance, Top Executives and the Upper-Echelons Perspective, the Governance Performance Relationship.

VHB ProDok Kurs “Choice-Based Optimization”

Choice-Based Optimization

Date: 19.07.-22.07.2021
Abstract:

Demand is an important quantity in many optimization problems such as revenue management and supply chain management. Demand usually depends on “supply” (price and availability of products, f. e.), which in turn is decided on in the optimization model. Hence, demand is endogenous to the optimization problem. Choice-based optimization (CBO) merges discrete choice models with math programs. Discrete choice models (DCM) have been applied by both practitioners and researchers for more than four decades in various fields. DCM describe the choice probabilities of individuals selecting an alternative from a set of available alternatives. CBO determines (i) the availability of the alternatives and/or (ii) the attributes of the alternatives, i.e., the decision variables determine the availability of alternatives and/or the shape of the attributes. We present CBO applications to location planning, supply chain management, assortment and revenue management.

Course Content:

Students will learn how to develop and use predictive models (discrete choice models) in the software R and how to introduce such models in mathematical models for decision-making (i.e., mixed integer programs) to consider demand as an auxiliary variable. The models will be implemented in a modeling environment (GAMS). Case studies will be used for practicing purposes.

Location:

The course will be held online only. The lecturers will give presentations about the theoretical contents. Active participation is compulsory.

VHB ProDok Kurs “Marketing Strategy Performance: Theory, Models, and Empirical Applications”

Marketing Strategy Performance: Theory, Models and Empirical Applications

Date: 05.-08.07.2021
Abstract:

Against the background of increasing pressure from the capital market and major corporate trends such as digitization, marketing managers are more and more forced to demonstrate the performance and value relevance of their decisions. Marketing scholars have responded to this development and produced numerous articles that relate marketing decisions with the creation of market-based assets (e.g. customer satisfaction), product-market performance (e.g., market share), accounting performance (e.g., return on assets), and financial-market performance (e.g., stock returns). The course aims at providing an overview of this literature, both from a conceptual/model-based perspective and from an empirical point of view. After having attended the course, students should be able to:

  • Understand central concepts of marketing strategy performance research and be able to establish links between these concepts;
  • Understand the basics of market response modeling and recognize the relevance of model specification for the validity of empirical estimation results;
  • Understand, categorize, and criticize high-quality (“A+”) articles within the research field;
  • Know key data analysis methods within the research field including their scope of application as well as their limitations and conduct first own analyses using standard software (R);
  • Develop relevant and interesting research questions with a potential for a high-quality publication.

VHB ProDok Kurs Simulation Modelling für Business Research

Simulation Modelling for Business Research

Date:

March, 1.-11., 2021

face to face time: March, 1., 4., 8., 11.:

Abstract:

Business research increasingly considers wicked problems and complex dynamic systems. Analytical models of such problems and systems quickly become untraceable and unsolvable. Given increasing computational power, simulation models provide an alternative tool. They can fuel studies tracing the long-term evolution of systems and comparing the outcomes of alternative scenarios. However, successfully applying simulation modelling for business research requires expertise on applicable simulation paradigms, approaches to model validation and the analysis of stochastic results.
