The Process of Theorizing and Theory Building in Management research, 5 credits

This PhD course aims to acquaint the PhD students with the process of theorizing and theory building in management research.

We start from the premise that it is critical for PhD students to master the process of theorizing and theory development from the extant knowledge and empirical data quite early in their Doctoral studies.

By the end of the course the PhD students will have gained skills and knowledge in (a) gaining sensitivity to theoretical development during the literature review process , and (b) analyzing and theorizing from qualitative data.

PhD students also have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with Dr Barney Glaser via live Skype from California.

Venue: Halmstad University, Sweden
