Recherche, études et conseil en sciences de gestion
This course covers the major currents in organizational theory through the study of articles and a more detailed focus on social exchange theory.
This course aims to equip students with the methods and tools necessary to practice qualitative research methods, whether they are used exclusively or in addition to quantitative approaches. It is designed in two parts:
(1) The first part (6h), delivered by Prof Hollet Haudebert, aims to give students an overview of the different qualitative methods and associated epistemological approaches.
(2) The second part (12 hours), delivered by Prof. Nathalie Richebé, focuses on qualitative interview techniques, from the elaboration of the interview grid to the content analysis of a transcribed interview. This second part of the course will focus on interview practice (in-class exercises) as much as on theory.
The dissertation (or thesis) is the final stage of the Master degree and provides you with the opportunity to show that you can conduct a research project…in order to be accepted in phD.
You will learn how to conduct your research and write an academic paper.
