MGMT 906 Micro Management Research Methods
This course is designed to develop in students an ability to analyze research reports critically and to provide skills in designing, performing, and reporting original Management research. Methodologies ranging from naturalistic field studies to laboratory experiments are reviewed along with various data collection strategies and construct measurement and validation. The course also covers practical application of what are typically considered to be "micro" research methods such as Hierarchical Linear Modeling, Structural Equation Modeling, Factor Analysis, and so forth to Management research topics. Students prepare and defend an original research proposal as part of this course. Recommended to be taken early in the program for Human Resource Management, Organizational Behavior, and Strategic Management doctoral students. Prerequisite: Admission to the Doctoral Program or graduate standing and permission of the instructor.
