SEMINAR FORMAT

Place and participation style: University of Vaasa, Vaasa, Finland   -  Physical participation, no online participation opportunity. All safety issues will be followed in detail.

LEARNING GOALS & OBJECTIVES

Learning goal and objectives: Due to globalization and higher international trade volumes 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 research 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:

  • designing theory based cross-cultural/ international studies
  • conducting cross-cultural research
  • quantitative and qualitative cross-cultural comparative methodology
  • doing cross-cultural collaborative research
  • doing research in transitional and developing economies
  • doing research outside your own home country

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.
