Syllabus

The purpose of this course is to provide PhD and Master students with developmental feedback on their current research projects in entrepreneurship and innovation management. We hope that many of these papers will be submitted to top tier journals subsequently. The paper development workshops will be structured to provide feedback to researchers who are designing empirical studies. For PhD students the course is targeted to strengthening their current research project and tailor it towards the publication process.

For master students the course should provide a stepping stone function in acquainting students with the process of independent research and provide very early and developmental feedback to subsequently develop the master thesis into the first research paper. The course will therefore benefit master students that aspire an academic career, such as a PhD degree upon completion of the master´s degree.
