In the last few decades network organisations and social network theory and methods have risen as a key field for research in Management and Business Studies (e.g., Brass1 et al 2004).
This 4th EDEN seminar is going to introduce Social Network Analysis (SNA) theory, methods and techniques for doctoral students who aim collecting, analysing and visualising network data for their research in diverse organisational settings and application areas. SNA and visualisation software such as Ucinet2 and Netdraw3 is going to be deployed throughout the seminar.
Examples from several research projects in doctoral and post-doctoral levels from both sides of the Atlantic are going to illustrate many of the qualitative and quantitative issues related to network theory and SNA of relational data at community, inter-organisational and inter-personal levels of analysis. Particular attention is going to be paid in the dynamic analysis of longitudinal data in the last one and a half days of the seminar using the Stata4 software.
In addition students are going to be allocated time in each and every day of the seminar for reflecting on what they will have learned the previous day and also presenting their own ongoing doctoral projects for getting advice and feedback from faculty and other participants during and after the seminar, see final draft schedule in Appendix. The primary aim here it is to create an intimate environment conducive for learning at the Cultural Centre / Museum of Megaro Gyzi at the scenic capital of Fira, at the island of Santorini (Greece), for about 20 doctoral students and 4 faculty from top EU/US Business Schools to share best practices and learning in the state of the art in SNA across boundaries in Europe and beyond.
Our seminar is going to combine lectures covering a broad range of issues, in depth tutorial discussions, and hands on training for SNA and dynamic analysis. Four modules are planned to be delivered as they are outlined below, including several required or/and recommended readings, that the students should ideally review and prepare before the seminar so that they accrue maximum value from it.
Students are also required to bring along their personal computers and download before the seminar the Ucinet/Netdraw/Pajek software from http://www.analytictech.com/ucinet/ucinet.htm
Full attendance is required to obtain the certificate.
4 ECTS will be assigned upon completion of the seminar
