Uni Hamburg: PhD-Course Business Research Methods am 14. November, 12. Dezember 2020 sowie 16. Januar und 13. Februar 2021 in Hamburg

Course Instructors:

Tammo Bijmolt (Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen, NL)
Dr. Felix Eggers (Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen, NL)


Course Overview:

The PhD course deals with research methods that can be applied in scientific research within various business disciplines. The focus of the course is rather applied: students who have successfully finished the course should be able to apply (multivariate) analysis methods at an advanced level in scientific research. For each topic, a full-day lecture will be used to explain that particular method and to learn about conducting the analyses. There will be four topics, each with a lecture and an assignment (see below).

The course is open for students from outside Hamburg, from other departments within the Business School, and junior faculty members (max. 15-20 participants). In principle, participants could sign up for all sessions / the entire course, or cherry-pick the topic(-s) that they like.

Objectives:

This course is designed to lay the foundations of good survey-based research in different areas of Business Administration. Through a critical review of existing literature, presen- tations and discussions, students become acquainted with common problems in survey- based research and advanced methods for solving them. Students get an overview of dif- ferent methods in the survey research “tool box”. This helps them identify appropriate methods for their own research and evaluate research done by others.

Prerequisites:

Students should have a solid foundation in statistics and be familiar with the basics of multivariate data analysis.

Student Evaluation:

To pass the course, participants are required to make a successful presentation. In addi- tion, they need to read one paper on each topic, participate in class discussions, and pass the exam.

Contents & Working Requirements:

Exemplary topics are preference measurement, measurement models for complex con- structs, structural equation models, moderation and mediation, multicollinearity, heter- ogeneity, endogeneity, common method bias. A list of topics and readings will be pro- vided at the kick-off meeting.

Participants prepare and hold a presentation – either alone or in a group (depending on the number of participants). In their presentation, participants explain, compare and evaluate methods relevant for their specific problem. All presentations should contain a practical example based either on an own dataset or on published research. Participants also take an exam at the end of the course.

November 22nd, 2019; November 27th, 2019; March 27th, 2020.

The last session will take place either in May or June 2020, and will be scheduled in the second meeting.

Credit Points 2 SWS/5 LP
Registration kathrin.marina.heim@uni-hamburg.de

(first come, first-served)

Objectives:

The main goal of this course is to introduce the design and implementation of both laboratory and field experiments in various fields of Economics and Business Administration. PhD students who have some experience with or who consider to set up an experiment are welcome to par- ticipate in this course.

First, we will identify different research questions for a laboratory or a field experiment. We start with discussing critical theory assumptions. We then show how research hypotheses can be inferred from behavioral models and how these hypotheses may be tested in lab or field studies.

Second, participants will present and discuss an experimental paper (either provided by us or self-selected) that is instructive for their own research field.

Third, participants will develop an experimental design and conduct a pilot experiment that is run in class. We introduce basic statistics along with a discussion how they relate to the exper- imental design. Alternatively, for participants who do not plan to conduct their own experi- ments, a second paper will be reviewed.

Participants have the option to take a research ethics training (https://about.citipro- gram.org/en/homepage/) that becomes increasingly important to conduct research projects with colleagues from the Unites States and in the European Union. All students will learn the basic requirements of a human subjects committee.


Some topics:

  • Identify a suitable research question for an experiment
  • Ethical and scientific standards: historical and scientific reasons, consent requirements, hu- man subjects committee, special requirements (children, elderly people, inmates, …), data collection and evaluation
  • Individual and group experiments in the laboratory
  • Surveys and internet experiments
  • Field experiments in cooperation with a company


Prerequisites:

Basic background in microeconomics, game theory and statistics.

Student evaluation:

  • Presentation and critical discussion of one or two experimental papers,
  • Optional but encouraged: experiment design presentation (extended summary on eco- nomic question, relevant literature, hypotheses, design: presentation with 10 slides or max. five pages extended abstract); running a pilot experiment

University of Hamburg – School of Business: Recent developments in audit research and an approach to getting published

Institution: Universität Hamburg, Fakultät für Betriebswirtschaft

Course Instructor: Professor Nicole Ratzinger-Sakel (UHH)

Course Value: 2 SWS or 4 LP

Block course:
20 February, 2019 – 22 February, 2019,
Time: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Location: tba

Language of instruction: English

Application: Please send a current CV until January 12, 2019 to nicole.ratzingersakel@uni-hamburg.de.

Course Overview:
The main objectives of this PhD course include:

  • Introduce students to recent developments in audit research; hereby students will get
    knowledge about a selection of audit research papers recently published in highly ranked academic journals.
  • In addition, the course will enhance students’ ability to critically review the quality of research papers which is a meaningful element of the double-blind review process and extremely important for the quality of their own work. To do so, students will get an idea which “list” reviewers typically follow. Students are further expected to present and critically discuss papers that will be assigned to them.
  • Students will further get advices to getting their work published.
  • Finally, students should present their (first ideas of) own (audit) research ideas during the
    course.

Student evaluation: Presentation and critical discussion of assigned papers (papers will be
assigned to students after their application; each student is expected to present and critically
discuss one paper).
