Course goals

Data Collection & Research Methods for Sustainability is a module which aims to equip the students with the skills necessary to plan and undertake independent research, with a view towards the master thesis and beyond. The course will begin with the introduction to the fundamental principles that underlie approaches to research and the practical implications of these principles, including formulation of research questions and issues of research ethics. Students will learn to produce a literature review as a part of a research project. We will then proceed to unpack the main qualitative and quantitative methods used in business research. Formulating their own research project proposals will help develop students’ practical research skills, and analysis of published research and other students’ research projects will sharpen their ability to critically evaluate the information coming from research conducted by others. Students who have successfully completed the course and all its assignments will be able to define the research question, formulate the research design, choose the appropriate methods for data collection and analysis, present and apply their findings, and critically evaluate other researchers’ output. Finally, the skills and knowledge gained in this course will also be employable during the preparation of their final theses.
