|Kurzbeschreibung||This course is for students who plan to write their master's thesis at the Department of Management, Technology, and Economics and is required of M.Sc. students and recommended for MAS students who write their master's thesis at the Chair of Strategic Management and Innovation.|

- Think critically and make compelling arguments about the strengths and weaknesses of published management research
- Find and review appropriate literature and previous research for your thesis
- Develop and frame interesting and relevant research questions and problem statements

|Inhalt||You will acquire the foundations for good empirical research in management research and will apply your learnings during the course in individual and group assignments. The course is designed with two main groups of students in mind: first, those writing their master's thesis at the Chair of Strategic Management and Innovation, and second, other MTEC students writing their master's thesis in the field of management. For both groups, the focal issues of this course will arise frequently during their journey of writing their thesis. We will provide some specific content which might not be applicable for students writing their thesis at other MTEC chairs, but the main part should be relevant for all students.|
|Voraussetzungen / Besonderes||The course is graded with pass or fail based on completing all assignments and attending the full two course days. |
The first assignment is due before the first course day. Please check the assignments on the Moodle coursepage. If you sign up for the course on short notice before the first course day, please advise the lecturer by email of your registration.
