The Finnish Doctoral Programme in Business Studies
Prof. Anne Kovalainen, University of Turku (Programme Coordinator)
The course is designed particularly for doctoral students who use qualitative approaches in their own doctoral dissertation. The course is suitable for students at the early stages of their doctoral studies although basic knowledge of qualitative research is required in order to be able to follow the course. The participants will be selected partly based on their university’s EIASM affiliation.
The objectives are three-fold:
The course consists of readings, hands-on exercises, individual consultation, dialogue and collective learning. Teachers’ will tackle each participant’s methodological and methodical questions through consultations.
Learning outcomes: The course has several educational objectives. The first objective is to broaden the participants’ knowledge concerning the various qualitative approaches, as well as to outline their potential for doctoral dissertations in the area of business research in various European countries. The third objective is to help students to identify appropriate qualitative methodologies and methods for their own doctoral research projects. The objective of enhancing publication process based on doctoral thesis is among the educational objectives on the course.
The course is built on prior reading, on-site action learning, consultative discussions and hands-on-exercises on how to do qualitative research. The course consists of intensive small group work sessions and discussions, individual consultations, some lectures and also of presentations made by the students. The course will be supervised by two teachers (Päivi Eriksson and Anne Kovalainen) with visiting lectures by David Silverman. The course will be helpful for doctoral students by assisting in decision making, and selection concerning methods and methodologies, data gathering and analyzing.
Reports are due prior to course and all participants need to read all reports.
