The Finnish Doctoral Programme in Business Studies
with the collaboration of
FIGSIB (The Finnish graduate school of international business)
There is an increasing trend in management research to conduct cross-cultural, cross-national and cross-disciplinary studies. Methods and methodology for comparative studies, however, require special knowledge and special skills. Researchers involved in cross-cultural comparative projects need to be familiar with the cross-cultural research methods and even be able to create novel methods and techniques in order to increase the validity, reliability, and trustworthiness of cross-cultural research. The empirical design becomes even more complicated, when studies are conducted in transitional and developing economies.
The course provides knowledge in:
After the course the participants are familiar with relevant methodological literature on cross-cultural methods. They are able to use the literature as a guideline for their own methodological choices. The participants will understand the difficulties but also the opportunities of conducting cross-cultural research. The participants will receive knowledge, understanding and preparedness to independently develop skills in conducing empirical cross-cultural research.
Doctoral students and post doctoral researchers who are conducting or are aiming to conduct comparative cross-national/cultural or international research.
Maximum 25 participants will be accepted to the course.
