Gender, Diversity, and Inclusion Research

The course aims to introduce students to the leading concepts and current discussions in gender, diversity, and inclusion research with a particular focus on those that are shaped by and relevant to the contemporary societal changes, developments, and global challenges. The course is structured in two blocks. In the first block (in June, online) students will be introduced to relevant concepts, theories, management practices, and ongoing debates in this field of study. Based on this and students’ preparation during the summer months, students will present their insights and (if applicable) their research ideas in the second block (in October, in person in Berlin).

Upon successful completion of the course, students will:

  • Acquire knowledge of past and current issues addressed in gender, diversity, and inclusion (GDI) studies from varying research paradigms;
  • Develop an understanding of how GDI research can address societal changes, developments, and challenges;
  • Be familiar with the latest evidence-based knowledge on how individuals, teams/groups, structure/context, and organizational policies/practices influence individual inclusion-exclusion experiences and behaviors in organizations;
  • Advance their reflective and critical thinking skills in analyzing the role of organizational practices for GDI at the workplace;

Advanced Topics in Asset Pricing and Capital Market Research

Starting from a solid theoretical foundation, this course provides students with an understanding of important empirical methods and their application in asset pricing. It covers both the classical approaches based on Fama and MacBeth (1973) and Black, Jensen and Scholes (1972) – which are still widely used in current research – and GMM-based estimation methods. Furthermore, it shows how machine learning approaches can be meaningfully incorporated into modern asset pricing.

The course intends to enable students to plan and carry out empirical research in asset pricing on their own and prepares for an empirical PhD thesis in this area of finance.

Design Science

Abstract and Learning Objectives

Design Science Research (DSR) is a promising research paradigm that intends to generate knowledge on the design of innovative solutions to real-world problems. As such, DSR is specifically useful in contributing to the solution of societally and practically relevant challenges. At the same time, matured methodological foundations are available today, specifically supporting publishing DSR research both at conferences and top-tier journals.

This course gives an introduction to Design Science Research (DSR). It focuses on planning and conducting design science research on Ph.D. level. It is intended to provide state-of-the art methodological competences for all Ph.D. students in business whose research is not solely descriptive/explanatory, but also comprises components where artefacts are purposefully designed and evaluated.

While Design Science Research is very common in Information Systems research, purposeful artefact design and evaluation are found in many other business research fields like, e.g., General Management, Operations Management/Management Science, Accounting/Controlling, Business Education, or Marketing. Although Design Science is often conducted implicitly, the methodological discourse in the Information Systems has led to a high level of reflection and to the availability of a large number of reference publications and cases, so that examples and cases will often originate from this domain. It should however be noted that Design Science as a paradigm is applicable and is used in nearly all fields of business research. As a consequence, this class is not only part of the Information Systems ProDok curriculum, but intentionally being positioned as cross-domain class.

The goal of the course is to provide Ph.D. students with insights and capabilities that enable them to plan and conduct independent Design Science research. To achieve this goal, students will engage in a number of activities in preparation and during this four-day course, including preparatory readings, lectures, presentations, project work, and in-class discussions. The course format offers an interactive learning experience and the unique opportunity to obtain individualized feedback from leading IS researchers as well as develop preliminary research designs for their own Ph.D. projects.
